I'm a bit pissy about something right now
September 4, 2013 at 9:10 AM

The case for war is being made in the halls of our lawmaking bodies and our president is elsewhere.  It looks as if he is not engaged in the heavy responsibility of helping our lawmakers make the awesome decision about war.  He's wishy-washy on what he wants to do and he is not taking responsibility for that. 

I'm sorry, something stinks in this scenario

    WTF are you talking about?

    He's met with a bazillion law makers over the last week. It's not his job to preside over congress...why would he be there?

    He's rarely been there when important decisions ate being made. This isn't the first time he's been elsewhere when congress is trying to decide on something important (of course maybe not war but other important things) or are in a gridlock.

    I was unaware of a requirement that the POTUS bad to be in attendance when important decisions are being made in Congress after spending days in meetings with various members of Congress and other leaders. He's doing what any other POTUS has done before him.

    Do you know where he is right now? He's making efforts to get our foreign allies involved so that if congress makes the decision to move forward we as a country would not be acting alone. Turn on your TV and see.

    But perception through biase might make it hard.

    The POTUS called for meetings with various members of Congress, and some other officials late past week, and over the weekend. It's not the POTUS' job to babysit Congress. He's only following precedent.

    I didn't say attendance.  But in the vicinity would be nice.  He's leaving his battle to our lawmakers and not clearly addressing the citizens.  When something this serious is looming in his country, he should be here.

    The purpose of the trip was not garnering support

    If he stayed people would be like why is he babysitting congress. He went now he is being a bad pres. I swear if he scratched his left butt cheek instead of his right first people would be mad about that.

    He is doing what presidents do and going to the summit. It was on the news. Brian Williams to be exact.

    How about over.  But semantics aside.  He should be more engaged in this process.  Especially with the people of his country.
