Fact checker misunderstands opposition to Obama's use of force in Syria

Washington Post:
Ryan and McConnell flip-flop on use of force in Syria to deter chemical weapons

President Barack Obama's planned attack was more robust than President Trump's one-night jab, but Republican leaders have conveniently forgotten that.
Obama had lost the trust of Congress after his huge mistake of retreating from Iraq.  His judgment was in question and many were not willing to embrace action by him only to have him pull the rug out from under them when things went bad.  He seemed half-hearted about his proposed measures and was looking to hang it on Congress if things did not go well and take all the credit if they did go well. It appears the fact checker has conveniently forgotten Obama;s perfidy.
