More stalling by the left's president.

Post  fshnski on Tue Sep 10, 2013 6:09 pm

President Obama told Democratic senators Tuesday that he wants to delay a vote on military action against Syria, as the administration presses for a UN resolution forcing Damascus to hand over its chemical weapons.

Obama made a rare visit to Capitol Hill on Tuesday, spending roughly an hour and a half huddled with Senate Democrats behind closed doors, explaining his stance on Syria.

Following the meeting, Obama waved and walked briskly past a throng of reporters on his way to a meeting with Republicans.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he agreed with Obama's call to let diplomatic options play out and would put off a vote on the authorization of force against Syria for an indefinite period.

Reid said he wouldn't be held to any “artificial deadline.”

“It's important we do this well, not quickly,” he said. “In the last 24 hours there's been remarkable changes. Let's see what else happens.”

Obama played all his cards right.
