Obama's speech was not helpful!..What does he want a Congressional resolution to say,exactly?

|Blog ---

At least 100 people outside WH. Secret Service a bit tense, telling ppl where they can't put stuff..

Fresh popcorn at the Syria protest outside the White House.

Harry Reid says he's canceling a Weds all-senators briefing on Syria because "there are too many things moving."

 If the goal of the speech was to be able to say he made his case to the people, then it's achieved. Not sure it accomplishes anything else..

Weakest part of speech was about danger of escalation -- basically "terrorists gonna terror."

He addresses concerns on both the right and the left. "The burden of leaderships are often heavy. But the world's a better place because we have bore them.".

Now he's discussing the proposal to put Syria's CW arsenal under international control.

"I have therefore asked the leaders of congress to postpone a vote" on the use of force "while we pursue this path." 

 No boots on the ground! He has mentioned this before. He has mentioned much of this before.

"I know military action, no matter how limited, is not going to be popular." He is now "responding to concerns" he's heard from congress and in "letters sent to me.".

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
