Almost as predictable as the House voting to defund Obamacare. Or acorn

Did they pass another Post Office renaming bill to the greater glory of St. Reagan?

They have every right to complain, considering that 0bama is being all upptiy. That Chicago thug really needs to learn his place in society. He is very well-spoken, but he eats crackers like he owns the place, so of course the GOP is gonna let the world know that 0bama is a person who annoys them.

With an amendment that they now need to pre-fund pensions for employees who won't be hired until 2215

I think it's amazing the place we've arrived at in this country; a solution that was come to in order to avoid war is being looked down upon....because it's not war.  You'd almost think that the people most perturbed by this got off on dead American soldiers or something.

""It requires a willful suspension of disbelief to see this agreement as anything other than the start of a diplomatic blind alley," the senators said in a joint statement, "and the Obama administration is being led into it by Bashar Assad and Vladimir Putin.""

Translation: Dammit, we wanted to bomb brown people!

McCain needs to die already. Graham needs to blow a few dudes and he'll feel better.

Well, I think it has been amply demonstrated that using dead Americans for political gain is the fashion these days

Is today a "He's doing too much" day or one of those "He's not doing enuff" days?

It's McCain and Lindsey Graham doing the squawking?

Prolly the latter.

And better yet; after they spent a week complaining that Obama wanted war.

So when Obama wasn't planning to bomb, they wanted war.  Then when he wanted to, they were against it.  Now that he is brokering a political solution, they want war again.

It's almost as if they're against something solely because Obama is for it.

Just mentioning here that John McCain's three sons are 23, 25 and 27--the perfect age to join the armed forces! Unless they're a bunch of gutless cowards, of course. Just sayin'...

Oh I don't trust Assad or Putin one bit. But do the senators have a better idea? And by that I mean one that protects Syrians and keeps the US out of another land war in Asia? One that has an achievable goal; a plan that is, above all, unlikely to make things worse? I'd love to hear it.

REP:  YOU MUST DO SOMETHING ABOUT SYRIA!!!

Obama:  Let me ask the UN...nope they didnt want to do anything....OK, I will tell the world that America should take military action, and immediately ask Congress for that authority

REP:  WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!!  WE CANT AFFORD MILITARY ACTION, AND YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO MAKE US VOTE ON IT, WHY HAVE WE NOT IMPEACHED YOU.  NO MORE WAR, AND BESIDES WHY ISNT RUSSIA DOING ANYTHING?

Obama: Russia?

Russia - OK, we agree we should help, now that America has threatened military action we have reconsidered and we agree to help remove the threat of WMD from the Syrian cival war.

REP: WhAT?  YOU MADE A DEAL WITH THE RUSSIANS?  HOW CAN WE TRUST THEM TO GET INVOLVED YOU ARE THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER, POTENTIALLY WORKING OUT A DEAL WITH THE RUSSIANS THROUGH THE UN TO RESOLVE A CRISIS WITHOUT LOSS OF US LIFE?  ....POTATO.

More than that they want Obama to bomb someone so they can try to use it aginst him. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Republicans and their water carriers are mad that they can't be mad at Obama for invading Syria.

But yesterday, Putin was the adult in the room, remember?

Bombing people would mean that we followed Obama's plan, and that was bad, but if we do what Putin says, that's bad too, since he's looming over the horizon at Mama Grizzly, and he was part of the Ebbil Empire, after all...

It's almost as if you might have to take a nuanced and carefully thought out approach to foreign relations, balancing relationships, conditions, and histories, and even shared interests, as opposed to simplistic "sides"...

Except when Obama wants to bomb someone, then they're such pacifists that they make the Jains look like bloodthirsty warmongers.

/remember, these are the same people who mourned the loss of the guy who killed 3000 Americans, simply because it was Obama who had him killed

When it comes to Syria, Congressional Republicans are changing their positions more than Lindsey Graham at one of Marcus Bachmann's "prayer retreats."

If those boys take after their father it's a safe move to keep them away from any military aircraft. Now let's see his daughter's boobage.

I predict that Republicans will try to push through a bill on Jan 19, 2017, that bans naming buildings after living ex-presidents.

They're only for it when they think Obama isn't going to do it.  Soon as it looks like he might do it, then war is evil and shouldn't be done.

Instead of buildings, can we name the air and space above the US after Obama? Obamasmos? Or natural resources, themselves? Obamair? Oilbama?

No no no, I've been reliably informed, by people right here on Fark, that it's entirely possible to divide this into clearly defined "sides." We are the good side, the Muslim terrorists are the bad side, and, well, Syria is kind of a problem, so we'll bomb it just to be sure. Because either they're on our side or they're not.
 
2013-09-15 12:07:18 AM
McCain still has his knickers in a twist about getting his ass handed to him in the 2008 election... that's all this is for him.

Graham just wishes he was relevant.

That's true for all of the other Republicans, but McCain and Graham genuinely want us to start whatever wars we can.  Of course they'll still criticize Obama, but it will always be because he didn't expand the war enough.
 
2013-09-15 12:27:56 AM
It's sad that McCain is such a coward that now he has to drag his wife, Lindsay, around with him everywhere he goes.

McCain has a "countries we've bombed" collectors' edition world map.  He's just trying to finish up Middle East dammit.  Why can't you all understand that?

FTFA: McCain and Graham say Obama's reluctance to lead a more robust response will further embolden Syria's neighbor, Iran, to continue flaunting U.S. warnings about its nuclear program.

If you've got it, flout it?

So, in the past week, Obama has gone from championing necessary, but highly unpopular, military strikes with GOP agreement....to shepherding Syria into the CWC, backing away from strikes that are now most likely unnecessary with Russian help...and the GOP is in a rage.

At the end of the day, Obama gets lots and lots of pictures and quotes and video of the GOP politicians agreeing with him and smiling and shaking hands..

He gets Syria to give up their CWs.

He gets to work with Russia and both sides come out looking like mature strong adults.

And the GOP is now championing that unpopular and unnecessary military action.

And some people say that all of this just sorta 'happened.'  lol
