Here's a guy that does a pretty good take on the procedure taken by Obama regarding Libya: BREAKING: Libya Legal According to 1945 Congress (Updated) « Another War of Jenkins' Ear The neocon GOP has a problem with this because Obama takes a positive leadership role in dealing with an enemy of America who killed her citizens and was never punished for it. Obama notified the leadership of both parties, got Nato and the UN on board and acted accordingly. This does not sit well with the Party of No's "get Obama" agenda....who look like hypocrits trying to criticize something their noted membership advocated for. The liberal/progressive and Dems have a problem with this because Obama is essentially involving us in another war....suspicious being that it's another oil producing country....in a region rift with historical American support of despots of whom "regime change" seems most tempting. And the band played on.
