  •  I don't believe Republican opposition is sincere (5+ / 0-)

    Democratic and Independent, yes, but Republican, no.

    All of my OFA sponsored sock puppets and I approve this post.

      genuine opposition coming from across the political spectrum. It's fascinating.

      I am sure there is cynical maneuvering going on in Congress, but I'm also seeing Democrats with questionable agendas voting yes. We're in Bizarro World right about now.

    •   I am afraid that many Republicans will vote "no" (0+ / 0-)

      for no other reason than to weaken President Obama.  

      While I applaud the President's decision in theory to put this to a vote before the U.S. Congress, I think that his decision wrongly assumes that the members of Congress will vote in accordance with what they believe is in the best interest of the country.  

    •  True of the Rube Party pols (5+ / 0-)

      totally cynical on their part, but their base, not so much.  Remember, by the end of Bush II they'd lost the support of half the Republican voters for the war policy, too.  What's happening now is building on that, and open to some partisan exploitation (of course that's going the other way, too; it's Dems, including well-known kossacks, calling me "baby-killer" for opposing this war.)  But frankly, the country is fed up with being broke and at war, told we have to give up our Social Security (told that by Dems, no less) but remarkably, always trillions available for the next war.
