(Washington) - President Obama faces the nation tonight in a live address to outline his reasons for possible U.S. military action in Syria. 

Obama has stated intentions to use military might against the Bassar Assad regime if it was discovered Assad used chemical weapons on his own people.

Obama, ironically, has support from several members on the Republican side as he looks for congressional approval to get involved militarily in Syria, but it will be a rough sell to other Republicans and most Democrats in Washington, according to Baldwin-Wallace University Political Science Professor Dr. Tom Sutton.

Sutton believes there's little doubt Obama will authorize U.S. military strikes with or without congressional approval.

Dr. Sutton says Obama has a sixty day window to strike Syria without congressional authorization, but stop military usage when the sixty days expires.
