Parse THAT!

Josh Kraushaar, reporting for National Journal:

Despite the show of support from House Speaker John Boehner and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday afternoon, that’s not going to move many votes. Neither is putting any pressure on their members to vote for a military strike against Syria despite their personal support. Both are calling it a vote of conscience and aren’t urging members to join them.

In other words, “We stand by the President (wink wink, nudge nudge).”

Here’s to hoping I was spectacularly wrong in thinking the White House would shove this thing through.

Adds fuel to the speculation that Obama does not want Congress to pass a resolution.

I think we're screwed now, no matter what.

But as far as the house goes, why vote for it now? The only reason would be to rescue some sense of dignity (or cover) to the oval office. A red line mulligan of you will.

But perfesser ditherton pretty much gave that up in his Q&A today, as well as shoving congress as hard as he could under the bus. So why bother now.

He won't look any less the punk one way or another.
