No, it doesn't. If I'm a boss of a company and I ask my employees their opinion on a certain decision, does it reduce my authority to act? Of course not. And that's when there is a clear power difference between me and my employees, which does not exist between President and Congree.I believe it reduces his authority to act
And I believe you haven't thought through this well enough.I believe it will set a precedent for future President's whether it binds them or not
But that wouldn't be an embarrassment on Obama, which is how I took your original statement to mean. Oh, and I don't think it would be an embarrassment to the USA either.and I think I was pretty clear in my explanation of how I believe it would embarrass the United States.
Do you oppose Obama going to congress? Do you support Obama's desire to get into it with Syria?
