Senate Foreign Relations Committee Authorizes Obama Bailout

By that I mean they voted to help him save his ass by voting to authorize the use of force to "punish" Syria:

President Obama's effort to win legislative backing for military strikes against Syria passed its first hurdle on Wednesday when a Senate committee voted in favor, but the narrow margin of victory showed the depth of U.S. caution.

Here's how the vote went:

Roll Call
Voting Yes: Sen Robert Menendez, D-N.J., Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., Sen. Jean Shaheen, D-N.H., Sen Chris Coons, D-Del., Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
Voting No: Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., Sen Chris Murphy, D-Conn., Sen. James Risch, R-Idaho, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo. and Sen Rand Paul, R-Ky.
Washington and Syria's main backer, Russia, remained publicly at odds as Obama tried to build his case for military action over chemical weapons before flying to Russia for a G20 summit hosted by President Vladimir Putin on Thursday.
And the mad dash by the commie libs and RINOs  to help Barack the Terrible save his ass continues.
