Move On has voted an overwhelming No! on the President’s planned intervention in Syria.

This makes twice in one week the far left has broken from the Obama Administration. First we heard about the ILWU breaking away from the AFL-CIO over its supposedly “moderate” positions shared by the President on ObamaCare taxes (see my post about it here), and tonight the far left Move On group has voted to leave the President twisting in the wind on the issue of Syrian intervention.

From Move On’s email blast,

Because this is such a big decision, we asked every MoveOn member to weigh in on whether MoveOn should support or oppose the congressional authorization to use military force in Syria.

The results are in, and they are unequivocal: 

73% said MoveOn should oppose the congressional Authorization to Use Military Force in Syria. 

History has shown again and again that even a “limited” military engagement can quickly become a slippery slope to seemingly endless war. But stopping this war is within reach. 
Consistent polling shows that the majority of Americans are opposed to this military intervention, and more than 147 members of Congress are on record as firmly opposed to or leaning against it.2 But mainstream media outlets and many elected officials are trying hard to make us think that strikes are inevitable.3
And they’re planning to become vocal about their opposition,

So we need to unleash the power of our more than 8 million member community right away to make it clear to Congress that we oppose military action in Syria. Congress will vote on the authorization to use military force as soon as next week, and members of Congress are making up their minds right now, so we need to act fact. 

No wonder the President is so keen on making it look like any foray into Syria is somebody else’s fault. He’s losing friends. Fast.
