If so, that is not going to be any kind of political masterstroke.

If congress votes for force, Obama isn't going to later "point the finger back at the evil Hawk Repub Congress", that is utterly silly.
You're delusional if you believe that. Obama has never been shy about blaming someone else when the opportunity to take some responsibility for a failure has presented itself. I think it's a given that no matter what Congress does and regardless of whether the final Obama admin decision is to use force or not, if things go bad, Obama will blame Congressional Republicans.
