Obama set to speak on Syria at White House
Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/31/2013 12:35:10 PM

WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama is getting ready to speak about Syria from the White House. Obama has been considering a limited military strike against Syria, but he said Friday that he hadn´t yet made a decision. The strike would be in response to a chemical weapons attack the U.S. says Syrian President Bashar Assad´s government carried out against Syrians. The U.S. says more than 1,400 Syrians were killed in that attack last week. The White House is also briefing senators Saturday about Syria. Obama´s statement is set for 1:15 p.m.

Interesting timing...either because it´s 1 hour after sunset in Damascus and commencement of night-time bombardment, or because it´s just prior to the broadcast of the 2nd round of the FedEx Playoffs...which one is Zero most concerned about watching?

FTA: briefing senators
What about the whole congress and not just hand pick members who will agree with you.

I am afraid obama will get more military members killed to puff himself up while also helping the terrorists gain power. He is upset that he lost Egypt for the muslim brotherhood and hopes to give them Syria instead.

Both sides in Syria are filled with savages.

Why should we take sides?

If the Nazis and the Japanese had attacked each other in 1944... would we have intervened?

Obama just wants his buddies in al Qaeda to win.

If he hasn´t gotten an official authorization from Congress, then any ´strikes´ are illegal and the military should not be required to go through with his orders.

Messy I know, but the illegality of this administration has to be stopped sometime. To pull this just to make himself look good in front of Putin next week is so irresponsible and petty. But that is Obama to a ´T´.

Vanity speech or panic--I ain´t watching his blather. Painted himself in a corner but unfortunately others will die for it not the democrat Hawks (and, yes, I know they prefer the word "democratic" but they are not, they are social democrat power brokers)

It about democrat power folks and the narcissistic prez doesn´t care who dies.

Wonder where "we came, we saw, he died" Clinton stands on this one. Hiding in a closet until the outcome is apparent?

Politicians...But we need them since most voters are lo fos. Some even pride themselves in being nonpartisan. LOL. Like they could "know" the person they chose. Take the Nobel Peace Prize folks and the middle voters or stay at homes that gave this man a mandate.

National Unity on this? Har de har har GWB bashers and denigrators as you go after Syria for using Saddam´s WMDs. Will that discovery ever make the US headlines when/if it occurs? What do we mushrooms think.

What a fabulous way for Obama to regain his Muslim Brotherhood pals... Cause Syria to bomb Israel!

Folks... the only polls he cares about are amongst the Islamists. By finally helping them invade Syria AND getting Israel bombed... he will be an Islamic Hero.

Give it about two weeks and it won´t be news anymore.

He´s hiding behind the UN´s skirt ...and leading from behind.

He shouldn´t require just the "approval" of congress. He needs a declaration of war from congress, according to the Constitution. It isn´t "his" military or even congress´s military. It´s our country´s military, and it doesn´t exist to launch attacks and kill people purely on the whims of one or more individuals who happen to hold some political office. It is for the defense of the country and its use has come to be taken much too lightly.

When a video of high school student Jeff Bliss calling out his teacher went viral, a lot of people started talking about the state of our education system and ways to improve it.

The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars.

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant.

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

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.

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,
