Some of the liberals haven't figured out what to think or say about President Obama and his determination to lob missiles into the men's room at Syrian command headquarters. When George W. Bush took the White House to his Prairie Chapel Ranch near Crawford, Texas, there was always Cindy Sheehan, surrounded by reporters and photographers, protesting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She became the left's pet rock.
Lingering frustration over the way President Obama handled the attacks in Libya that led to death of a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans has colored the debate over whether to launch military strikes against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
