high Crimes and Misdemeanors


03-20-2011  •  Outside the Beltway 

Four years ago, the Junior Senator from Illinois had this to say about the use of military force:

2. In what circumstances, if any, would the president have constitutional authority to bomb Iran without seeking a use-of-force authorization from Congress? (Specifically, what about the strategic bombing of suspected nuclear sites — a situation that does not involve stopping an IMMINENT threat?)

The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.

As Commander-in-Chief, the President does have a duty to protect and defend the United States. In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the Legislative branch. It is always preferable to have the informed consent of Congress prior to any military action.

So what?  Does anyone think the Americans will do anything about it?....I doubt it!

Does anyone really thin the Americans really give a damn if it dosn`t bother them personally....No! they don`t.

Does anyone even think most Americans even know about it...Not likely.

America has elected cowards to lead them,and do not have the respect of freedom loving people.The unions are depicting what Americans are all about that being themselves.
