Such a lonely boy.
Obama blusters about the U.S. going it alone against Syria.
He is right to blow off the U.N. as a useless decision making body but he is absolutely wrong about having the Constitutional authority to do so.
For a supposed Congressional Law instructor the dude might want to review the WAR POWERS ACT. He must get Congressional approval.
It is ironic then that many people currently pining for missile strikes against Assad’s admittedly heinous regime use the War Powers Act to justify their position.
“He has 60 days to act without Congress,” they say. “He only has to notify Congress within 48 hours if he attacks,” they say.
Both are true, but only in the case of a strike in retaliation for an attack against us. If we are attacked, the President can immediately respond, then must notify Congress within 48 hours and get a declaration or statutory authority if hostilities last more than 60 days.
The President cannot order any military action on his own if we are not attacked. Period.
The Constitution is basically a useless relic to Obama and his cabal.
In the video below you will note Obama’s complete babble on if he is or isn’t going to take unilateral action against Syria’s chemical weapons labs.
Which side is Obama on?
With the recent admission that the rebels caused the release of chemical weapons, who’s side is Obama really on?
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message, of course I would for God’s sake I wrote it ;-)
