1. “I intend to vote yes. … If the vote were today, it would probably be a no vote” in the House.

2. “There’s weakness on the part of the president. It’s not been a good week.”

3.  “We’re the United States of America and we have to stand for something.”

4. “Look, if he had acted as Ronald Reagan did, as Bill Clinton did, as a number of other presidents did — in compliance basically with the War Powers Act — I think that he could have done that. And that would have been a decision made by the president. But at the eleventh hour, when the strikes — leaks have been massive and unprecedented — the strikes are already planned; we know what ships are there; we know how many missiles — I mean, unprecedented leaking, then a reversal at this point, I think, has — has serious consequences as far as steadfastness and purpose of this administration.”

5. “[T]he fact is we also can’t be uninvolved, because if you just leave it to fester and you have people both in Egypt and in Syria feeling like we have abandoned them, that the United States of  America is not on their side, that becomes a breeding down for terrorists, and then that becomes dangerous for us in the long run.”
