Obama REFUSES to rule out striking Syria without approval of Congress as it's revealed he faces a huge loss in House vote
President Obama today refused to rule out attacking Syria without the backing of Congress, as new polls show he faces a crushing defeat in any vote in the House of Representatives.
"I put it before Congress because I could not honestly claim that the threat posed by Assad's use of chemical weapons on innocent civilians and women and children posed an imminent, direct threat to the United States."
Now, not only is his "red line" gone, but so is his claim that the conditions in Syria are a threat to United States.
But, he still wants to START a war with them - and, maybe, Russia, given Putin's machismo - regardless of what Congress says.
I had thought Obama's legacy would be merely as the worst president in US history. Now, it looks like it may be as the US president who started World War III.
