The big difference is that Obama respected the constitution. The Republican President, not even a little bit.

The wingnuts keep going on about a red line but conveniently forget that Obama requested a Use of Force authority three times with regard to Syria and each time the republican controlled congress cowered from their responsibility because they did not want to share in the political risk.

Congress said according to the War Powers Act, he already had the authority.

Just like he used force in Libya... without congressional approval.

Ever Read the War Powers act... oh wait asking you to understand something is futile

President Obama seeks Congressional approval for intervention Edit
Following the publication on 30 August of the U.S. Government Assessment of the Syrian Government’s Use of Chemical Weapons on August 21, 2013, President Obama gave a speech in the White House Rose Garden on 31 August in which he announced that he would seek authorization from Congress before using American military forces to intervene in the Syrian civil war.[33][34] In the speech, he announced that he was "prepared to give that order," referring to ordering a strike on Syria.[33] Obama argued that it was necessary to intervene because the recent chemical weapons attack in Syria "risks making a mockery of the global prohibition on the use of chemicals weapons" and that it put U.S. regional allies that share a border with Syria in danger.[35] In his speech, Obama also said that, "while I believe I have the authority to carry out this military action without specific congressional authorization, I know that the country will be stronger if we take this course, and our actions will be even more effective."[35] Introduction of S.J. Res. 21 in the Senate soon followed.
