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 are going on the assumption that all this chemical warfare has been proven in hard facts towards Assad and that is simply not proven at all. This is all ginned up BS and I am totally against risking more American Blood (especially when they won't even take "boots on the ground" off the table) and especially even more when our Usurper in office actions have spoken much louder than his words to my point and Patteau's points of political finger pointing at any cost !!
