HMO: Get Congressional Approval

HMOffsuite: It sure looks like President Obama is going to launch retaliatory strikes on Syria for their having used chemical weapons. And, without congressional approval. Obama was very critical of Bush when he launched attacks without congressional approval and Biden has said it would be an impeachable offense. So, is this more typical hypocrisy from Obama? Sounds like it to me. Maybe Obama has evolved some more, you know, contradicted himself again. I would hope these strikes on Syria aren't being done solely to defend his 'crossing the red line' comments. Personally, I think the best outcome here for the President and the Country would be for him to seek congressional approval and have it denied and we do nothing. It's too late in the game, imo.

Question: Do you agree/disagree w/HMO re: President Obama seeking congressional approval before approving an act of war against Syria?
