Rand Paul praises....get ready for it.....Obama

www.huffingtonpost.com


Paul did, however, praise Obama's last-minute decision to seek congressional approval for U.S. military action. "The one thing I would say that I'm proud of the president for, is that he's coming to Congress in a constitutional manner and asking for our authorization," Paul said. "That's what he ran on."

Hannity and Coulter....well you have to read it

Hannity Trots Out Ann Coulter As Syria Expert
Posted by Ellen -596.20pc on August 27, 2013 Flag

President Obama is weighing military strikes against Syria, which have the potential for very serious consequences. So who did Sean Hannity turn to as the top pundit to weigh in with analysis? Two-time voter-fraud suspect Ann Coulter.

Coulter has no experience in foreign policy nor has she ever served in the military. Her main claim to fame, as Biography.com puts it, is her brand of insult commentary. And, of course, her inflammatory invective is always directed at Democrats and/or liberals. That and a low cut dress, ladies and gentlemen, is all it takes to be a Fox News expert, apparently. At least on the Hannity show.

As usual, Coulter had what seemed like a pre-planned insult at the ready. The first comment out of her mouth was, "It's very depressing talking about foreign policy whenever a Democrat is president because they don't care about America's national security interest." That, right there, should have been grounds to dismiss her. But Hannity seemed enchanted.

Coulter loved her line so much she reiterated the sentiment at least one more time. Some might say, it seemed her main point.

"Democrats, generally they intervene when it is directly contrary to the interests of the United States," she said gleefully. "They seem to think it's selfish to do something that will help the United States such as invade Iraq, take out a dictator and preside over several democratic elections." She forgot to mention that those "democratic elections" produced a country that is now very much influenced by Iran. She and Hannity also conveniently forgot that we didn't invade Iraq to take out a dictator but purportedly because they had weapons of mass destruction - that they didn't have. Coulter never explained and Hannity never asked what good to this country came out of Iraq. I believe Cindy Sheehan still wants to know, too.

Then, in the same appearance, Coulter showed her utter lack of serious interest in democracy when she sneered that in Egypt, "We took out a ruler who was good for the United States and put in the Musim Brotherhood." In the first place, "we" didn't "take out" dictator Hosni Mubarak nor did we "put in" the Brotherhood. The Egyptians overthrew Mubarak and then elected the Brotherhood member, Mohamed Morsi.

But Coulter closed by saying, "Do not vote for Democrats for Commander-in-Chief, America." So she'll undoubtedly be back

their slogan is " we watch fox news so you don't have to"

Why havent the US send military strikes to these countries where rampant genocide and rape of women and and babies are on a wide scale? Since its all about human rights , right? What is the reason? And I have written letters to the White House about this no response. Both Administrations. And Iam not minimizing the horror of the situation of the Syrian people.

Pat Buchanan: Obama's Syrian Strike Would Be "Impeachable"

Patrick J. Buchanan tells Newsmax if President Obama decides to attack Syria without Congressional authorization, he would be engaging in "what would clearly be an impeachable act."

"The key figure is Speaker of the House John Boehner, who should call the House of Representatives back into session on Monday and instruct the president directly: Mr. President, you have no authority and no right to launch acts of war against Syria against whom we have not declared or authorized any war. We are calling on you not to engage in what would clearly be an impeachable act starting a war against a country without the approval of the Congress when you are asked directly not to do so," Buchanan, a former presidential candidate, told Newsmax on Thursday.

"If the president launched an unnecessary and unconstitutional war, striking a country against whom we have not declared war and has not attacked us, that is de facto an impeachable act that could lead to an open-ended war, the consequences of which we cannot even see," the political commentator and author also said.
