Even if I was a hawk on Syria, I can't imagine what kind of Republican would be so foolish as to want to give this president any more rope to hang ourselves with by authorizing him to intervene in this civil war. Anyone who supports or votes thier approval on this ends up sitting in the boat next to what is easily one of, if not THE worst commander in chief in American history.
I would think even a Syria hawk would want to put this guy on the sidelines as much as possible and hope for the best, rather than giving him authorization and expecting the worst.
Ehyeh asher ehyeh.
"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism." -Ronald Reagan
