…as it’s revealed he faces a huge loss in House vote

President Obama today refused to rule out attacking Syria as new polls show he faces a crushing defeat in any vote in Congress.
An ABC News reporter at the G20 meeting in St. Petersburg, Russia, tried to pin him down and get a ‘direct response’ to the question of what he will do if his gambit seeking congressional approval fails.
‘I’m not going to engage in parlor games now … about whether or not it’s going to pass,’ he said.
Obama also announced that he will make his case on Syria to the American people again on Tuesday in a national address.
The speech will make a final pitch for support of his plan to cripple Syria’s access to its chemical weapons stockpiles.
‘It’s conceivable at the end of the day I don’t persuade a majority of the American people that it’s the right thing to do,’ Obama conceded. ‘And then each member of Congress is going to have to decide.’
