Republican Rep. Peter King said he wants President Obama to show more leadership if he wants to convince House members that voting "yea" for his Syria resolution is in the best interest of the United States.

"It is up to the president to be much more forceful and not seem like he is trying to pass the buck on to someone else," King said Thursday on Fox News. 

King added that Obama did not help his cause by saying Wednesday that the Syrian government's alleged use of chemical weapons on Aug. 21 violated the international committee's and the Congress' "red line" -- and not his red line.  

As of Thursday afternoon, only 31 out of 435 House members support strikes in Syria, according to The Hill.
