Obama Won't Say What He'll Do If Strikes Aren't Authorized

Well, that's discomfiting


President Barack Obama on Friday declined twice to say whether he would take military action in Syria even if Congress rejects the resolution authorizing force.

While holding a press conference in St. Petersburg, Obama told CNN's Brianna Keiler that speculating on such a dielmma is premature at the moment because he's still trying to build support on Capitol Hill. 

"I think it would be a mistake for me to jump the gun and speculate because, right now, I'm working to get as much support as possible out of Congress," he said.
