Comment: Amen to that.

Amen to that.

Funny, the language is right there in plain English.

Another one that modern morons tend to ignore or overlook conveniently is that the President is only Commander in Chief over the Army, Navy, and Militia when they are called into the ACTUAL SERVICE of the United States. (via a declaration of war, following an attack by another nation upon us)

Thus, this "I'm the Commander in Chief" b.s. is just that - b.s. There is no declaration of war. No state of war. Thus there is nothing to command.
