Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee has been a strong Republican ally of the White House. As the ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he has been supportive of the president's plan to strike Syria– until now. He tells CNN's Dana Bash that Pres. Obama is "not comfortable" being commander-in-chief.

In spite of surrounded by Capital Hill politics and political opinion to bash our President of the United States of America ....go Obama and as a dumb citizen I listened to your speech and it was crystal clear. Our military doesn't do pin pricks. Putin now lectures our president of the United States of America in charge of the most powerful military in the world and reports he is alarmed. The balance is reached when all chemical weapons are secured and turned over for international control. When does Putin put his troops on the ground in Syria to get that done and can we have a date for cease fire in Syria to agree between Obama and Putin ? Both leaders need to send a message of cease fire to Assad and chill out for world peace and balance with all chemical weapons secured under international control.Obama is giving time for diplomacy to work before military force orders are given. We heard ya Obama but Mr. Corker isn't listening.Our president of the United States of America has not lost credibility and commands the most powerful military in the world ! Obama knows that and doesn't need to come off cocky in a speech about it but made his point and his speech was clearly understood. Good job on that Obama well understood message .
