President Obama has his work cut out for him when it comes to convincing Congress to attack Syria – even members of his own party are criticizing his plan.
Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel said on “The Lead”, “I can’t imagine anything that I’ve heard that would persuade me that the conduct of this insane maniac in Syria is doing anything to place my country in danger or to violate our national security.”
If the rest of Congress agrees with Rep. Rangel there is still the chance that President Obama could call for military action.
However, Rep. Rangel says there is “no question” in his mind that the President would never authorize military action without the support of Congress.
