You now have Republican members of Congress deploring 1) President Obama's refusal to take military action against Syria, 2) insisting that he requires congressional authorization to do so or he should be impeached, 3) saying they won't vote to authorize it because he won't go far enough and 4) also because he'll go too far. And the kicker is that it's often the same person saying each of these mainly or in some cases totally contradictory things at the same time. I say Republicans. And in this case, their extreme animus toward the president intensifies the nonsense. But the shoe might well be on the other foot if a president of the other party were in office.
So if nothing else this is a good result of Obama's decision: making people decide. You want to make this happen or prevent it from happening. Without accountability and some say in the process, you have this perverse process of everybody coming up with their own boutique war policy. I'm for it but only if it's limited and gets the job done. I'm totally for kicking ass and saving the children, but I'm going to vote no because of Obamacare. Everybody just show their cards and live with it without excuses.
