So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Tuesday September 3, 2013.

Another day and Syria is still the big story. CNN reports that some in our military have some very serious concerns about getting involved in Syria. The military may be a little worried, but foreign policy analysts seem downright uncertain about what President Obama’s endgame is for intervention. A former White House strategist said, “The results of this mystifying lack of preparedness have been abysmal…” calling Obama’s decision to seek congressional approval for the strikes “constitutionally sound, but strategically appalling” and suggesting the White House find “an objectives-based strategy.”

Meanwhile, our allies in the Middle East think the President is a joke. That perception really cannot be good for America. Former Ambassador to the U.N, John Bolton, says that President Obama is “the weakest President since Buchanan.” Ouch. That seems harsh. Everyone knows how soft Buchanan was, am I right? I mean, it’s gotta be bad when you embarrass Charlie Rangel with your behavior.

How about some number association with the Syria debate? Here are five questions for Secretary of State Kerry and Secretary of Denfense Hagel. Now here are 10 reasons why Bush’s Iraq is different than Obama’s Syria.

CNN has a roll call of how the representatives would currently vote on authorizing war with Syria. Here is the link to the House list. Here is the link to the Senate list.

Oh, and in case you were wondering… Great Britain will not be getting involved in Syria… ever.

WooHOOO! We found some Syrian war protesters! We knew some of them still had to be hanging around. I wonder how many of them regret their vote for Obama now?

randChrisHave Chris Christie and Rand Paul buried the hatchet?

The NSA was caught doing some spying I can get behind. Why do people get so outraged when they find out other countries have been spying on them… isn’t that why everyone has spy agencies? I mean really…

A Oregon bakery that was being investigated by the state and sued by a gay couple has closed its doors for good. A sign on the window simply said, “Religious freedom is under attack in Gresham.”

Could Tim Tebow get back into the NFL with the same team that just released him? Maybe.

Soon to be mom’s… if there is any chance that this is true… please don’t eat chicken while your pregnant.
