    No, he didn't. Nor does it disprove my claim. He asked for the right to decide; there was no vote to go.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You might want to read Kerry's speech before he voted. He explains pretty well than Saddam wasn't the kind of threat that required invasion, but wanted Bush to have some teeth to encourage compliance. Still, Kerry noted Bush promised not to go in unilaterally and hope Bush would hold up his end, and that if Bush didn't, he'd oppose Bush. That's way reading what is actually said and argued is important.

    He doesn't need to ask for any "right to decide.

    He can send forces if he wants, and separately, he can ask for resolutions for force etc.

    The president does not ask congress for permission to be a dictator.

    Revisionism.

    Nope. He did not ask for a vote to go. He asked to allow him to decide. As I said, read the speeches.

    I'm saying, he said what he do, stated it clearly, and did just what he said he do.

    Thats not how it works. Here's where you link to specific data backing your claim. No, "listen to the speeches" does not count.

    Apples and oranges....This is only deflection to cover for Obama's mess, by blaming or comparing the situation to anything Bush...It really is childish. Obama owns Libya from top to bottom, and Hillary is going to wear this anvil around her neck regardless of what you think of it...We are going to make damned sure of that.

    What at this point does it matter what Bush did? One thing is crystal clear Obama threw away any successes there by not negotiating a SOFA agreement....Obama made the sacrifice of those brave troops that came home, and those that died there worthless....Just goes to show how little liberals value American servicemen's lives.
