FROM FNC Ed Henry:
On background, a senior GOP aide tells Fox they believe there may be 300 bipartisan “no” votes in the House on the record AGAINST the resolution on Syria BEFORE the President speaks to the nation on Tuesday
Senior GOP aide says feeling among Republicans is the President should have delivered a major address THIS WEEK – perhaps before he went overseas … that this was “the critical week” to change minds on the Hill and he has not done it ..
Here is on the record, from Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck: “The speaker has consistently said the president has an obligation to make his case for intervention directly to the American people. Members of Congress represent the views of their constituents, and only a president can convince the public that military action is required. We only hope this isn’t coming too late to make the difference.“ – Brendan Buck, Boehner spokesman
