When All Else Fails… Spin – Obama Now Seeking Congressional Approval on Syria

In a typical Obama move… when all fails… turn, spin and try to make it the Republican’s fault.  All of a sudden, as all America’s allies have pulled support for action against and involvement in the Syrian Civil War, President Obama moves his red line and changes direction, which you can bet will end up being another failed action that he and his administration will spin, with media help, to blame on the ‘bad’ Republicans.

Thoughts on Syria… From All Sides – Updated 08.31.13

Obama (Now) to seek congressional approval on Syria

Boston.com:  WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials in the Obama administration and on Capitol Hill say President Barack Obama intends to seek congressional approval for action against Syria.

Obama will speak on the developments in Syria from the Rose Garden on Saturday.

The officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak ahead of the president

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.

President Barack Obama’s national security team was to consult senators Saturday about Syria while House Speaker John Boehner invited House members to return early from their August break for a classified briefing as the White House readied for a possible military strike.

Vice President Joe Biden, who was scheduled to be in Delaware this weekend, was instead at the White House, where Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Secretary of State John Kerry joined him.

Hagel, Kerry and others were to consult by phone Saturday afternoon with Senate Democrats and Republicans. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, also were to participate.

The White House said the calls would be unclassified, meaning officials would be limited in what they can say.

But on Sunday, the White House planned a classified, in-person briefing for House members, according to a notice from Boehner’s office to House Republican staffers. House Democrats were planning to invite their members as well.

‘‘This will be one of many classified briefings,’’ read the invitation. ‘‘However, given the numerous requests made, the speaker wanted members to have an opportunity this weekend.’’

The briefing was coming a day after the administration publicly released an unclassified intelligence report concluding that Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government killed more than 1,400 last week in a chemical attack. A classified version of the assessment arrived on Capitol Hill late Friday night, the GOP notice said, and was available for all House members to review.

Obama is considering a limited military strike in response to the chemical attack, but said Friday he had not yet made a decision.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
