Senator Paul responds to Obama’s speech on Syria
Obama is a divider.
Check it out:
Lawmakers remained sharply divided Tuesday night over how tough to get with Syria despite President Obama’s major national address, leaving an open question as to whether the president could corral the votes for a military strike should he decide to take that route.
The president backed off the military option in his speech, saying he’s asked Congress to postpone a vote while he waits for Russia-backed diplomatic talks to play out.
Some, like Tea Party favorite Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., seemed to support Obama’s plans to give diplomacy a chance, while others blasted the president for an allegedly watered-down approach and criticized his inconsistencies on how to deal with Syria.
