Re: Obama: Congress Is Supposed to Represent Me, Not the American People
***Snip***

In a speech today at the G20 Summit in Russia, President Barack Obama stated that members of Congress should listen to their voters but ultimately should act on their own, against their constituency, in order to make a decision that is “right for America.”

Obama made this revealing statement after a journalist asked, “One of your closest allies in the House said yesterday, ‘When you’ve got 97 percent of your constituents saying no, it’s kind of hard to say yes.’ Why should members of Congress go against the will of their constituents and support your decision on this?”

“Now, with respect to Congress and how they should respond to constituency concerns, you know, I do consider it part of my job to help make the case and to explain to the American people exactly why I think this is the right thing to do,” Obama said. “It’s conceivable that at the end of the day, I don’t persuade a majority of the American people that it’s the right thing to do and then each member of Congress is gonna have to decide, if I think it’s the right thing to do for America’s national security and the world’s national security, then how do I vote?”

“And you know what? That’s — that’s what you’re supposed to do as a member of Congress. Ultimately, you listen to your constituents, but you’ve also got to make some decisions about what you believe is right for America.”

....Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany.

That is understood.

But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship."

"There is one difference," I pointed out. "In a democracy the people have some say in the matter whatever through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars."jerkit

"Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy.

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked

Re: Obama: Congress Is Supposed to Represent Me, Not the American People
President Obama today refused to rule out attacking Syria without the backing of Congress, as new polls show he faces a crushing defeat in any vote in the House of Representatives.

**** SNIP*** from DRUDGE Report today.


An ABC News reporter at the G20 meeting in St. Petersburg, Russia, tried to pin him down and get a 'direct response' to the question of what he will do if his gamble seeking congressional approval fails.

'I'm not going to engage in parlor games now ... about whether or not it's going to pass,' he said.

'You're not getting a direct response.'


But while he acknowledged knowing his Syria gambit with Congress was 'going to be a heavy lift' all along, the president insisted that he didn't 'put this before Congress just as a political ploy or as symbolism.'

'I put it before Congress because I could not honestly claim that the threat posed by Assad's use of chemical weapons on innocent civilians and women and children posed an imminent, direct threat to the United States.'


Obama also announced that he will make his case on Syria to the American people again on Tuesday in a national address.
 Quoting: KenTx2011


I'm sure in that speech he will make sure to blame the republicans and Bush

So last week we're a constitutional democracy...you know a place where the people's voice is the only deciding factor in everything, and now this week we're back to being a republic again.

This is getting so tiring trying to keep up with what kind of government the president thinks we have.

BREAKING: Dem Congressman Charges Obama With Syrian Intelligence Scandal

***Snip***
Florida Congressman Alan Grayson, once among the most ardent supporters of the Obama White House, is breaking ranks and calling out the Obama administration for manipulating intelligence data in order to convince lawmakers to allow military action against Syria. While such accusations have been whispered for day behind closed doors, Grayson is among the first lawmakers to make them public, and the accusation itself is possibly the most serious ever leveled against the administration among a member of the president’s own political party.

Rep. Alan Grayson: Syria Intelligence Manipulated

Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., who is aggressively lobbying against a military strike on Syria, says the Obama administration has manipulated intelligence to push its case for U.S. involvement in the country’s two-year civil war.
