    Your drummer has lost his cadence.
    I'm pretty sure that's a code and a secret agent, somewhere, has sprung into action.

    Try asking a real question.

    I know you believe that, but others are not as convinced. Now information has been presented that show there is real doubt on the matter, as this was a UN opperation. I know you don't want to hear that, it being real information and all, but the fact is it isn't as simple as you try to paint it.

    Is there a chance that Obama's long form has been altered so as to change the facts?

    No. Not likely.

    The correct answer was: That's not a real question. Hence, I question your ability to identify one.



    Just havin' fun, Boo.

    True. I stand corrected.

    You don’t answer real questions but in the off chance that you have decided to answer them, I’ll ask again.

    Did candidate Obama claim that the President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation?

    Actually it is as simple as I paint it. The fact that it is a UN operation has nothing to do with the constitutionality of this war considering the US wasn’t attacked by Libya, wasn’t about to be attacked by Libya and there was no Congressional approval for the President to start a war with Libya.

    Obama agreed with me until he became President. Clinton agreed with me until she became Secretary of State, Biden agreed with me until he became Vice President etc. Now that they are in power, they aren’t interested in preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States.

    The War Powers Resolution requires the President to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30 day withdrawal period, without an authorization of the use of military force or a declaration of war. The resolution was passed by two-thirds of Congress, overriding a presidential veto.

    Obama needs to face impeachment to bring his sorry ass under control
