Support on Syria

September 3rd, 2013

The lead article in today’s New York Times, “President Gains McCain’s Backing on Syria Attack,” shows the President is learning how to do his job in a way that Bush and other Presidents never have. His decision to consult with Congress and his initial success in mobilizing essential supporters such as John McCain will go a long way towards achieving a positive vote.

The House representatives and Senators really have no choice. How can they look at the victims of the August 21 sarin attack without feeling the need for some response, some justice against the regime who did this?

President Assad has the dubious company of people like Saddam Hussein and Adolf Hitler in gassing their own citizens, and that argues even more strongly for an effective response from the international community.

One of the strongest arguments by President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry — who has been leading as a passionate point man for the President — involves the terrible impact of doing nothing.

The President is leading a full court press for a confirming vote, with briefings for legislators and Senators on three separate days this week. He recently held a conference call with more than a hundred Democrats.

The only concern involves his upcoming trip overseas. That could remove him from the action at a critical moment.
