    That was dumb on Obama's part because it was obvious that he wasn't prepared to act on it.

Obama didn't want to act without congressional approval. He did not get it. So he didn't act, until he felt like doing it anyway, then he did.

Edit: This is all politics anyway and public perception anyway. Where's the international outcry over bullshit like this?
