Excuse me...Mr. President...Did you bother to go to Congress...

...before you started bombing Iraq???

I thought you were once a Constitutional professor.

Is not bombing or droning, or occupying another nation an act of war?

And if so, then shouldn't you follow the Constitution and first declare war and then go to congress for authorization?

I couldn't care less about some constitutionally illegal "War Powers Act" which you also used in Lybia.
-------------------
So as not to overlook the cause of the unrest in Iraq today, I put the blame squarely on the shoulders on the insane Bush administration war-mongers who destabilized that country in the first place.

It'd be cool to seem Amash

It'd be cool to see Amash stand up and give a little 2 minute Ron Paul educational lesson to an empty house of representatives.

John Boehner

gave him his blessing.

That figures...Boner and his insane war party never saw an...

...attack they didn't love.

Just goes to show you

That goes to show you just how corrupt all three branches of our government are.

DONT JUST BLAME IT ON OBAMA!

That's exactly what they want you to do. Have a fall guy! The Congress could shut him down with the snap of their fingers if they had ANY decency at all!

They all need to be thrown out of office for not stopping it!

If they were statesmen, not statist politicians..

They would have declared him ineligible for office.....instead either partisan politics or status quo prevented it.

I agree Eagle and I DO blame all 3 branches for sure. But...

...in this case and in the case of bombing Lybia it appears Obama single-handedly made the decision to use force.

If there was any cousultation with congress, I never heard it and you're right, no one in congress stood up and complained about it.

All the right-wing Benghazi talk really pisses me off becaue it misses the point which is that we bombed them FIRST - with no declaration of war.

In the end the buck stops with the president. That's the job he wanted and so criticism in cases like this starts with him.

But overall I blame congress for just about every problem this country has because they control the purse strings.

Notice that when Obama elects to use military force, the democrats (who are supposedly against our interventions) are silent because their party holds that office.

And the republicans never complain because they love all wars, interventions and occupations.

It goes deeper than this.

Again, Jeff Sessions questioning Leon Panetta. We don't need no stinkin permission from congress.

The war powers act doesn't apply to Obama's illegal invasion of Libya.

I believe the 9/11 authorization is still in place

Congress never removed the authorization for the use of force against Bin Laden and associated groups. Well....we know from the theory of the 7 degrees of separation that anyone can be connected to anyone. Add to that a high priced law degree, and you've got a rationale to kill anybody, anywhere, anytime.

First Bump of the Thread

Great question, I guess part of the answer might lie in the fact he has no regard for the rule of law, and has said the Constitution is deeply flawed...Is this guy even a Natural Born Citizen by the Founder's definition? (DYOC)

Natural born citizenship is

Natural born citizenship requires birth on US soil to US citizen parents. Period!
