It's a precarious situation the US finds herself in. And I think waiting to get votes simply makes the US look that much worse. If you've got irrefutable proof, strike and worry about Congress later. But this public haggling and trying to get votes to do something makes the country look incredibly weak. Keep this up, and folks won't even remember why we're talking about it in the first place. I kinda think back and growing up with Ronald Reagan. While we may not have always known what was going on behind the scenes, if he told you he was gonna do something, the enemy believed he would do it. Now we look like "Hey don't you do that. I thought I told you not to do that? If you do that one more time I'm gonna..." It's rather pathetic. At this point I'd rather he just take action to stop making us look like a bunch of emasculated, lil girls while some bully is taunting us.
