GWEN IFILL: Hello, Mr. President. Thank you so much for joining us. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Really appreciate it. Thank you. ARTICLE TOOLS Print Email Share JUDY WOODRUFF: And welcome to the NewsHour. (snip)PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, first of all, I’ve not made a decision. I have gotten options from our military, had extensive discussions with my national security team. So let me talk about what’s at stake here. I think we all understand terrible things have been happening in Syria for quite some time, that the Assad regime there has been killing its own people by the tens of thousands, that

Even if he decides to do something, the fact that he has taken so long confirms once again what our enemies have learned about this president. My understanding is that he has previously stated that his strategic policy regarding a nuclear attack on the United States is "absorb and assess." Seriously.

Obama´s big mouth got him in a corner. The U.S. should stay out of Syria´s civil war. Muslims killing Muslims, what´s not to like.
Keep both sides supplied with lots of ammo. If he wants to missile someone, missile Iran. He doesn´t have the nads for that. Muslims are not worth one dime of taxpayer´s money or one drop of an American soldier´s blood. America´s biggest threat is posed by leftwing Democrats and not AQ or Taliban fanatics.

I do not want Obama/ValJar/Soros to be the trio who start WWIII. He can look for his stupid legacy some other way.

Shouldn´t he be spending time worrying about his Presidential Library and new Global Non-Profit that ValJar will head? I´m sure the Clintoons can tell them just how to steal funds from the organization in order to continue their rich and famous life style.

Each time Obama mentioned a stockpile of chemical weapons, I wanted the interviewers to ask, where did those chemical weapons come from. Does Syria have a longstanding reputation for producing them or did they arrive across the border straight from Saddam Hussein´s regime just like President Bush said. Not one bit of journalistic curiosity. Odd, isn´t it? /s

Obama golfs, vacations, makes the occasional teleprompter speech and appears with media toadies who are eagerly willing to kiss his butt. He can get away with illegally and unconstitutionally altering legislation and forcing liberal social engineering down our throats because our government offers no easy way to stop him. When it comes to foreign policy he is dealing with people a whole lot smarter than he is and who are not the least bit impressed with him and his opinion of himself. Obama didn´t sign up to govern and now the whole world knows it.

He can´t make decisions, but he can do things which foul up the stock market, the Israelis, etc. etc. etc. The world is suddenly in turmoil, turmoil to which he materially contributed. Some say he likes to do this, because it gives him a chance to act unruffled, but I think this is incompetent behavior, not calculated behavior. He´s capable of calculated behavior, of course, but he´s more than capable of incompetent behavior.

I don´t think we should do anything in Syria. It´s futile to get involved in the Middle East except to protect Israel if necessary. That said,

[OBAMA:} ...if, in fact, we make a choice to have repercussions for the use of chemical weapons, then the Assad regime, ... will have received a pretty strong signal, that in fact, it better not do it again.

What "repercussions"? If a shot across the bow is all that happens, why bother? They´ll just rebuild and regroup. You have to destroy a cancer to keep it from growing back.

And that doesn’t solve all the problems inside of Syria, and, you know, it doesn’t, obviously end the death of innocent civilians inside of Syria.

What, exactly, will Assad et al do? Suddenly decide to stop oppressing and killing their own people? Why? Because we took out their airstrips and planes? Those people never change. Tyranny is the default position of mankind unless outside forces destroy tyrants, not pinprick them.

Now, if they want to go in their with boots on the ground and wipe out Assad and everyone else in power, go ahead, so long as our oil supply isn´t disrupted.

We have good reason to resent his commandeering of any of our armed forces for his ridiculous Arab spring.

´ love the way the major news network´s evening news began their program with this "dome" someone came up with: It said the US would use stand off weapons while showing the dome over Syria, as if any missiles fired or planes launched from Syria would crash into it and fall back to earth. Maybe they got that idea from Stephen King and his dome show.

Bamboozler gets minimum two-fer for all the war drum banging re Syria: It takes the heat off of him in the news by drawing attention away from his Egypt failure(heard much on it lately?) and tests the public for reaction so he can actually make a foreign policy decision. If he or more likely Valerie is listening, then they should know majority of Americans want him to leave well enough alone as he is in way over his head. He´s already shown all too well he doesn´t know what he is doing.

Well, so far any of his decisions have been pathetic so I´m all for him not to make any on this situation also. I´m sure it would not be the right one for America anyway. So he should just go play golf with Reggie Love. The Lord of the Flies should just stay low for the duration of OUR sentence with him.

What a difference a week makes. Go back to recent news articles and have a good laugh. The French were going to ´punish the Syrians´. Snicker, that lasted but a few days and they surrendered without a shot fired.

The UK was going to send ships and men to join the fight against those dirty Syrians. Cameron said so, but that didn´t last long. The Empire that had once occupied large parts of the world took only a few days to turn tail and reverse that decision. After all London IS surrounded by Muslims.

Obama, that heroic Community Organizer, out of his element as usual, drew a red line, a yellow line, then a white flag. Now he´s threatening some sort of shot across the bow of some unidentified ship to show the Syrians he means what he says, I mean he really, really means it.

Of course, someone finally tapped him on the shoulder and told him the facts of life. The Russians, Chinese and other bad guys with big ships and planes have said again, and again to back off, Syria is their friend, and to get your butt back to Chicago.

They also mentioned the UN and the fact that nobody had proven that Assad had gassed anyone. What to do now... so many scandals for Baracky to hide and some people actually do fight back. I guess a return to spying on those ungrateful American people.

Obama was transferring weapons and WMD out of Beghazi...to AlQaeda...

This is to begin a war in the Middle East...and close our oil pipeline at the Straights of Hormuz...hisnfriend that he demanded be reinstalled in Egypt or he would ut off funding. Is part and parcel of his cabal...Obama has stopped drilling in the USA through the use and direction of FEMA and the EPA...he has weakened the dollar ...he has spent is country into Oblivion!!! He was created racial strife and chaos for confusion... He wants to collapse the dollar and the country into communism..and. With his friends the IslamoCommunists of the Muslim Brotherhood he is damn close. This isn´t just Chauncey Gardner....He IS a revolutionary and a communist..whose mentor greatly admired Hitler and Stalin

This one time there is not shame in doing nothing. It shouldbe an entire wld effort to isolate the chin-less doc.
Also Benghazi should have been world outrage. We are suppose to protect and support the ambassador-embassy entity.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

"We are quickly coming to the point where we are not going to be able to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius," Kim said at the start of the IMF-World Bank spring meetings in Washington.

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host.

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

A hereditary peer has questioned whether flatulence caused by the country’s high consumption of baked beans is adding to global warming. Viscount Simon, 73, a Labour peer who has been a member of the House of Lords for more than 20 years, raised concerns about the “smelly emissions”. His comments came as energy minister Baroness Verma answered questions in the Upper House on how the Government was tackling climate change.(snip)Lady Verma described his question as “so different”. But she added: “You do actually raise a very important point, which is we do need to moderate our behaviour.”

Protesters with The New Black Panther Party and the family of Alfred Wright held a demonstration in Jasper Monday. The gathering, called "National Rally for Justice for Alfred Wright" was held at the Texas Rangers office in Jasper on Highway 190 West. The rally was the second held since Wright disappeared November 7, 2013. Participants in the protest demanded entry into the Department of Public Safety building. They said they wanted to see Ranger Danny Young whose involvement in the investigation has been under question by the Wright family. Trooper Young was not at the building.

2014 is an election year.

What if that employee has been with the company longer or has more experience? These are questions that courts have been mediating since 1963 as companies have faced lawsuits over gender discrimination with regard to wages.Why 1963?

Watching a congressional hearing usually amounts to the civic duty equivalent of eating your vegetables, but one House hearing today dished out some drama (if not comedy) for dessert. After getting grilled at the House Judiciary Committee hearing, Attorney General Eric Holder wished one of his outspoken critics “good luck with your asparagus.”(snip)In asking Holder today about the Justice Department’s refusal to turn over documents in an unrelated terrorism case, Gohmert again raised the issue of contempt, saying, “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight.” A visibly

Secretary of State John Kerry angrily defended the Obama administration’s record on international diplomacy from Senator Jim Risch, after the Idaho Republican claimed that America’s foreign policy “is spinning out of control.” Kerry came before a Senate committee Tuesday, explaining to interested lawmakers that Russia remained an aggressive force in eastern Ukraine and that increased sanctions against Vladimir Putin’s regime seems more likely. “I do not envy the position you’re in here today,” Risch began after Kerry had outlined significant challenges in eastern Europe and elsewhere. “After the discussion we’ve had here today, I think anybody who would come in here would

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
