Congress declares war. The President is the Commander in Chief There is a lot of wiggle room between those two positions. Granada Serbia All the other places troops were sent under: Carter Reagan Bush Sr. Clinton Bush Jr. and only NOW are house Republicans freaking out????? Then you have Republican Senators agreeing with the president. Lindsey Graham, McCain, and so on. How many troops are in Libya?? Zero, oops. Now get this. For years Republicans have been SCREAMING for the NATO Allies to "do something". Now they are taking the lead against Qaddafi with Obama providing drones and fuel, but not troops and Republicans are SCREAMING. All the other places former Presidents sent troops where they actively "engaged" in combat and only now Republicans are SCREAMING. What is SCREAMING is the "Double Standard". They would rather see America suffer economically rather than create a jobs bill that might help this president (no surprise there, no one can say Republicans want to help the middle class, who would believe it, it's just too far out there). And now they are SCREAMING the president isn't following the constitution after not a "peep" from ALL the other times those other presidents sent in "combat troops". I'm not saying ALL Republicans are against this president because he's black. Only about 90%. What else could it be?
