    While some in the media are talking about some little girl getting her supposed feelings hurt because she challenged Michelle Bachman. Did Obamush get his extension for military action in Libya?

    Oh and while we're at it.
    Clinton To Congress: Obama Would Ignore Your War Resolutions
    Update: Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), who asked Clinton about the War Powers Act during a classified briefing, said Clinton and the administration are sidestepping the measure's provisions giving Congress the ability to put a 60-day time limit on any military action.

    "They are not committed to following the important part of the War Powers Act," he told TPM in a phone interview. "She said they are certainly willing to send reports [to us] and if they issue a press release, they'll send that to us too."


    The White House would forge ahead with military action in Libya even if Congress passed a resolution constraining the mission, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said during a classified briefing to House members Wednesday afternoon.

    No it's not, not even the non reporting of the issue.

    Only Republicans are required to have Congress's approval to wage war. Or have you missed the last 3 years?

    We're STILL in Iraq.

    We're STILL in Afghanistan.

    Hell, we're STILL part of the UN powder-blue punks Clinto sent us off to in Central Europe.

    We STILL have wiretapping.

    We STILL have GTMO.

    The only thing different between now and 2000-2008 is we now can't afford gas or meat.

    The Republicans in Congress are just guilty as Obama for standing idly by and doing nothing as he breaks the law.

    Everything Bush did that was wailed about on this board for 7 years is now acceptable because Obama's doing it.

    Problem is, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. So, do you maintain the high ground or do you cry like little titty babies with dirty diapers as the Dems do every time they don't get their way? And run it into the ground FOREVER?

    Hell, I STILL see Bush and Palin threads.:cuckoo:

    Congress needs to act now or they are soon going to be irrelevant. Restrain this action in Libya.
