Barry the Warmonger Faces Major Defeat in House

The newly-minted commie lib warmongers in the U.S. Senate and the RINO senators like John McCain and Lindsey Graham who are falling all over themselves to line up behind Barack the Terrible may carry the Senate (it's a tossup at this point) but his Syria war plan is headed for a major defeat in the U.S. House:

If the House voted today on a resolution to attack Syria, President Barack Obama would lose — and lose big.
That’s the private assessment of House Republican and Democratic lawmakers and aides who are closely involved in the process.
If the Senate passes a use-of-force resolution next week — which is no sure thing — the current dynamics suggest that the House would defeat it. That would represent a dramatic failure for Obama, and once again prove that his sway over Congress is extraordinarily limited. The loss would have serious reverberations throughout the next three months, when Obama faces off against Congress in a series of high-stakes fiscal battles.
Several Republican leadership aides, who are counting votes but not encouraging a position, say that there are roughly one to two dozen “yes” votes in favor of military action at this time. The stunningly low number is expected to grow a bit.
But senior aides say they expect, at most, between 50 and 60 Republicans to vote with Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), who support the president’s plan to bomb Syria to stop Bashar Assad from using chemical weapons on his people. That would amount to less than one-third of the House Republican Conference.
Arizona congressman Matt Salmon reported calls to his office the other day running 498-2 against Barry's War. Let's hope the opposition to Obama's ill-conceived plan to save his ass continues to grow.
