Support staff is installing protective floor mats, reality barriers, and excuse nets so that the president may safety preform this feat of ethical gymnastics and moral double standard without breaking a sweat for the world as he delivers his message of aggression and call to crush self-determination and the democratic process in Syria. Corporate knows best.

This guy just doesn't get it. Americans do not want to take part in the Syrian civil war. Americans are also tired of the lying. It's beyond reality that the only one calling out Kerry and Obama for lying is Putin. In my lifetime, I never thought the more honest leader in the world would be a Russian.

My sense is that the American people are opposed to this by at least a 3:1 margin. Be prepared for a stern lecture from the president as he tries to convince us that the U.S. needs to put another Middle East military adventure on the credit card. And remember...lobbing multitudes of missles/bombs at another country from afar with the intent of destroying and killing is NOT war.

"lobbing multitudes of missles/bombs at another country from afar with the intent of destroying and killing is NOT war." - It is if you're on the receiving end. I'm sure Syrians understand the difference between what the political leaders in the US choose, what the vast majority of the american citizenry is saying (NO ATTACKING ANOTHER COUNTRY HERE), and will easily forgive and forget any transgressions of common decency US political leaders make. Right.
