So if Congress says no Obama will do strike? Possible I suppose.
Of course, many on your side of the aisle were decrying that Obama couldn't/shouldn't take such action with checking with Congress first, so it's a bit absurd to complain about him not doing just that...
We know, of course, that Bush didn't much care what anyone thought as he went on his little cowboy adventures.
