    Boiking doesn't think he needs anyone's permission to do anything.

    Tyrants are like that.

    Think about that. :eusa_think:

    This is what happens when the office of the president has been usurped by a ineligible person. The founders warned us of such a possibility and that is why they suggested nothing but a natural born citizen be commander of the american armies with only sole allegiance to the U.S. Obama is trampling the Constitution.

    This has nothing to do with this damn birth certificate. It's completely irrelevant to the conversation. Talk about the issue at hand or go find another thread.

    I agree. I would have had a problem if President Bush had done this, Heck, I would have had a problem if President Washington had done this. This is completely wrong and violates the checks and balances of this nation.

    This isn't the first time, nor will it be the last when an administration's interpretation of the War Powers Act differs with congressional interpretation. The Supreme Court will never hear the case. Even if a court ruled against the administration, Congress would be very unlikely to end US participation.

    Much ado about nothing.
