    I've seen many debates about the war powers of the U.S. Congress, but I've never seen an American president openly laugh at the idea of seeking congressional approval for a major U.S. military assault on another country.

    Obama did it with Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Kenya and tried it in Syria. But not in Iran.

    Gaddafi is dead, Libya is a disaster, and no one has gotten any answers. Other than that contemptuous laugh. The media don't even dare to ask questions. They are afraid of retaliation.

    I haven't seen an American president openly pressure the U.S. Supreme Court to protect his party's takeover of one-seventh of the American economy.

    As Charles Krauthammer pointed out regarding the assertion of Federal jurisdiction made by Obama:

    I have not seen any American administration publicly claim its powers to rule by arbitrary decree about illegal immigrants, like a European despot.

    I have not seen an American president take over banks and auto companies on behalf of his political friends, like the United Auto Workers.
