Why does Mark Begich hate Obama so much? Is he racist?
Sens. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Mark Udall (D-Colo.), both facing tough reelection fights these fall, issued statements sharply critical of Obama’s proclaimed plans to launch military attacks unilaterally and to arm Syrian rebels.
“As a member of the Senate Armed Services and Intelligence Committees, I believe any expanded U.S. military role beyond airstrikes in the fight against ISIL in Iraq must be approved by Congress,” Udall said in a statement.
“The American people must be assured that we are not pursuing another open-ended conflict in the Middle East, and I will not give this president — or any other president — a blank check to begin another land war in Iraq. As we have seen in the past, American boots on the ground cannot stamp out an extreme ideology and the Iraqis must take responsibility for defending their own people.”
He, like every Democrat that weighed in Wednesday, said he plans to continue to demand further details from the administration on its plans.
Well, Obama said he doesn’t need their approval and the idiot base of their party seem to agree.

Bush = Warmonger. Obama = Isn’t he dreamy?
For some strange reason Obama keeps insisting the Islamic State is not Islamic. Using that logic:
The Democratic Party does not represent democracy #ObamaLogic
