Corker Says Obama is a 'Diminished Figure'

Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), who has been supportive of President Obama's call for the use of military force in Syria, says the president is a "diminished figure" in Congress following his address to the nation about Syria on Tuesday night, the Washington Post reports.

Said Corker: "I guess it was a result of last night, my temperature level is up slightly today. He is diminished figure here on Capitol Hill. I can assure you of that."

Associated Press: "Some of President Barack Obama's top allies say the president misread a few crucial political forces when he asked Congress to support his bid to strike Syria."
