Obama

has seen the US people overwhelmingly is against attacking Syria, however he painted himself in a corner by drawing the line in the sand, and using Kerry to promise a US retaliation. He can't attack Syria on his own now so he is turning it over to Congress. If congress agrees he can say Dems and Rep. both voted for this (like Bush did with Iraq)so blame them, if congress votes it down he can say its congress's fault Assad goes unpunished. Doing the "right thing" was his only option because he failed at handling this situation politically.
