    Wow, Clinton and Bush VIOLATED the war powers act and they are men for it, we're all interested in preventing Obama from committing the same crime and you say he'll be a coward if he doesn't! Some real circle reasoning Navy.

    He could do the same...but he would be violating the War Powers Act as well. Maybe we have a President that believes in following the rule of law for once.

    I care nothing of what you claim his "facts" are. You shouldn't either. But if you agree with what he typed out then rethink what actually happened back then. He just proved Bush and Clinton did not violate the war powers act, by his reasoning anyway.

    Clinton did when he went to war in Serbia. Reagan did too, when he sent troops in to help the Contras. The War Powers Act is just a piece of paper, unless the people stand up when our leaders choose to violate it. Right now, unless the American People stand up to him, Obama is going to do whatever the hell he wants.

    NOTE: Bush did not violate the War Powers Act, since his attack on Afghanistan was in direct response to an attack on US soil, and his war in Iraq was approved by Congress.

    I think what navy is talking about is that Obama is only putting this to congress for political cover. Lord knows he doesn't accept blame for anything he does, or says.

    Let this president stand up and accept the responsibility for his actions.......He will never do that because it defies his far left base. Its amazing you can't see that.

    Exactly, thank you....Obama is still blaming Bush and he has been President for almost 5 years.
