Obama changes his mind. Do cruise missiles have a rewind? Never mind until September 9.
By mid-afternoon, Obama emerged in a steamy White House Rose Garden, surprising lawmakers, reporters and the public with news of his plan.
"I'm ready to act in the face of this outrage," Obama said. "Today I'm asking Congress to send a message to the world that we are ready to move forward together as one nation."
Then Obama and Biden left the White House by motorcade to play a round of golf.Members of Congress, forgive me for playing out of order -- it's your turn now, of course, please. NATO, how about we play a scramble? We could use more involvement here. Fore -- President Assad! Incoming! I said fore, did you hear me? Duck! Vladmir, sorry to have distracted you as you were preparing to putt in. Israel, you can go hide in your bunkers. Iran, maintain your stance and play through whenever you are ready.
Golf etiquette, that's no answer to this entire bloody mess.
