The GOP-Democrat Alliance
The U.S. is the only democracy on earth
without an opposition party.
While there are some differences between the political "factions" that rule America, it is also true that both sides traditionally close ranks to protect the Elites of Washington from the prying eyes of those pesky voters back home.
Now it is leaking out that the House GOP Leadership may prevent a floor vote on Syria if it looks like Obama would be defeated.
“I just don’t believe that if defeat is certain, the House leadership will want to see a president utterly humiliated on the House floor in a public vote,” one top aide to the Republican leadership told the National Review.
Should the full Senate vote to approve an attack on Syria — as still appears somewhat likely — the battle would shift to the House.
“An attempt would be made to let the whole thing go away. I don’t think it would be done to give the GOP any extra leverage in debt-ceiling or budget negotiations — Obama isn’t the grateful type — but simply because the weakness it would demonstrate wouldn’t be good for the country,” the aide told the National Review.
Good for the country my ass. The GOP wants to protect Obama's ass and the future ass of any GOP President to wage war.
Dems & GOP Arm Syrian Rebels.
We have long been conducting and unconstitutional war to overthrow the government of Syria. The Democrat and GOP leadership is doing everything possible to protect their CIA run "Secret War" in Syria from full public view. But detailed information about CIA directed arms shipment can be seen in media all over the world.
