He got all confused regarding who the other branches are in The Constitution, which makes one wonder how he could have taught constitutional law.
As a presidential candidate, Sen. Barack Obama (D.-Ill.) emphatically stated that the Constitution does not give the president the authority to unilaterally authorize a military attack unless it is needed to stop an actual or imminent attack on the United States.
Obama made the assertion in a Dec. 20, 2007 interview with the Boston Globe when reporter Charlie Savage asked him under what circumstances the president would have the constitutional authority to bomb Iran without first seeking authorization from Congress.
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, Obama responded.
So he got authorization...from THE UN!
That is kind of funny.
Perhaps he pulled a page from liberal ronnie's page when he decided it was time to bomb Libya? No picking on Obama unless you pick on ronnie as well.
Honestly we were just talking today in agreement. Congress should be forced to vote on something like this before we take action. Hell, either house, even one house or a 29 member Congressional fast response team. I'm in the settling mood. These things are too important to be up to one man, be it Ronnie, George, Bill, George, or Obama.
