    The strangest thing about your assertion is that Obama himself disagrees with you. Does that mean you are secretly a Republican?

    http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/legislative/sap/112/saps1867s_20111117.pdf

    Maybe you should rethink your support of a bill that Obama opposes. I am sure that, since I pointed out that your god hates this bill as written, you will now join me in denouncing it.

    From QW's link:
    Public Law 107-40 was signed Sept 18th 2001. That was a Joint Resolution meant for going after the perps of the 9/11 attacks.

    He went to war in Libya saying he didn't need Congressional approval. Was he thinking the joint resolution was good enough or that because he's the head of the UN Security Council (Impeachable Offense) he doesn't need it?

    He talks about US GOV'T authority but I think he means HIS OWN authority. If this passes then it takes authority out of his hands and that's why he's threatening to veto it, I think.

    Probably.

    I just like making TM's head explode when her talking points conflict with those of Obama.
