My jaw literally dropped. I know he thinks that, but I can't believe he actually said it so bluntly. He said he had the authority to go to war without the approval of Congress (never mind an actual war declaration), but he would humor them and ask their opinion anyway. At the end of the speech, when a reporter asked if he would still go to war if Congress's opinion was in the negative, he just walked away from the podium and went back into his palace.
