Thumbs Up for President's War Plan From John Boehner

So, he has that going for him.


WASHINGTON — John A. Boehner, the House speaker, on Thursday forcefully backed President Obama's call for congressional action to train and arm Syrian rebels battling the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, joining Senate Democratic leaders to promise a vote next week in a rare display of unity.

The speaker somberly acknowledged divisions within his Republican ranks, but he vowed to lead the fight.

"The president made clear he does not want boots on the ground. Well, somebody's boots have to be on the ground," he said. "At this point in time, it's important to give the president what he asked for."

  1. Wait, There is a plan?

    1. Sure there is a plan. We fight an ideology by dropping bombs on select targets.

      After all, remember how much damage resulted to the American idea after 9-11! When the Arch-duke was assassinated, worldwide peace in the Islamic sense ensued.

      Publicly acknowledging the religious nature of the enemy and recognizing that its’ base of support is not primarily militant? Learning to understand their belief systems so to confute them? Withdrawing support for nations which allow funding to flow to them? These are simply unnecessary if we drop bombs on the right people.

  2. Well, I’m personally glad our parties are agreeing on something again…

    It’s been so long — literally, hours — since our political establishment consensus in DC hadn’t reached a consensus on something.
