    read and heard reminds me so much of Iraq.  To attack Iraq it was because of WMDs and then the narrative changed to, "He gassed his own people."

    It's the opposite here:  He must be punished because he gassed his own people, and then Obama said the chemical weapons in the country could be used to attack the United States.

    Same shit, just in a different order.

    And now we're back to "Decider in Chief," waiting upon Obama's decision (which we all know what that will be.)

    So which is it?  Punishment?  Or should we be cowering in fear because there are biological weapons that might get into the wrong hands and hurt Americans?

    And can a country that spends their taxpayer dollars on wonderful social safety nets PLEASE STEP UP and do whatever it is Obama wants done?  No, they won't.  It's no wonder why.  

    One thing I do know for a fact is that Democrats suck at messaging.  Bush/Cheney and the republicans never sucked at that.

    So when Obama does make his decision to bomb Syria, and he will do that, the messaging is going to suck.

    Bush had support for invading Iraq, he lied, but his message was very effective.

    Obama going around and giving interviews, Oh, I haven't made a decision yet, is so lame.  The UK made a decision.  Actually, I wish they would pick up the bill for this.
