    The reality is the process was followed.  Think about this: past presidents would have just rushed the bombers in and then asked people to rally around after the fact.

    Whether we liked the plan or not, this was done not for political points but out of respect for our way of government.  The administration laid out a case that also put pressure on Syria, and they let the people decide.

    This is what our government is supposed to do.  And I have to at least give Obama credit for respecting the system enough to follow it through rather then act on his own without those steps.
