    Mr. Rand Paul is a male version of Sarah Palin. A publicity hound!

    The President has not only lost face-he has sullied Americans around the world!
    He has been disgraceful and unprofessional!

    Please pass this to our Commander and Chief:

    Mr. President you are a nice guy, but sometimes hard to understand. You should never trust the guy that was in the room when your children was mistreated, but claims he didn’t do anything.

    Please lock your heals, reach with your left hand down your left side and squeeze, and give the Command to fire! As far as the logistics of the chemical warfare. Who is going to go find what has been transported and stored in Iraq.

    I remember a few months ago McCain and Graham beating the war drum and leading the GOP intervention parade. I am not for war but it seems to me the Republican party lacks the courage of their convictions. Changing their war tune to try and shame the president the cowards only shame themselves.

    Rand Paul is wrong that the President lost face. To strike Syria without consulting with the allies of the United States, the American people and Congress is like jumping into the frying pan barefooted hoping both feet will not get burned. President Obama exercised wisdom, courage and restraint. The threat of force will help in determining the truth whether President Assad had and used chemical weapons on the Syrian people in rebel held areas.

      He did this as a last resort because he had no support and the whole world knows this! IT IS A FACT!

    The Isolationist-In-Chief, Mr. Neville Chamberlain himself, speaks.

    Better to have him the Senate than operating on one's eyes.

    CNN actually reporting something that hurts barry's ego, I am stunned. If the international community, execpt China and Russia, are against this action we should be to. We have problems in our country that barry is either ignoring or making worse. Fix those first then we can police the world with our morality.

    The President has shown Prudence and common sense. If Syria takes the Russian proposal, then the President will gain us valuable negotiating leverage through his principled stand. Those who sought to obstruct him solely to gain political points will be exposed for what they are.

      Well said. The GOP lead the intervention charge just few months ago now change their position and at the same time oppose any deal.

    Paul Rand would complain if President Obama sneezed or he caught cold. This conservative is sick of Mr. Rand! Matter of fact I am sick of most of these pseudo-conservatives
