    When I and my opponents can agree, that's when I know we're on the right track.

    History shows that we don’t have the stomach for prolonged conflict unless our own people are at risk, so I suggest you stop supporting men, and start supporting the rule of law regarding presidential war making powers.
    I have a son currently stationed in Iraq. Keep your suggestions. I will support the president and demonstrate to our enemies that once we are committed we are unified in our resolve to do the job, kick their ass, and bring my son home safely. You do what you feel is most appropriate.

    I will continue to support the constitution, especially when the president ignores it.

    No treaty can be ratified that subordinates any part of the Constitution.

    Actually, US Law states that any treaties ratified by 2/3 of the senate become part of US Law

    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    The usual suspects, ultra liberals and card-carrying libertarians are standing up and decrying the President's order for our military to participate in the U.N. authorized intervention in Libya, putting to the lie that liberals only oppose Republican presidents' wars and that all conservatives move in lockstep to war.
    What? We don't hold our Presidents responsible for their actions anymore. There's no such thing as "impeachment", it's like leprechauns.

    Oh, it's all too real and coming to partisan political vote near you: The Coming Impeachment of Barack Obama.

    That's hilarious! Since when do you have a beef with ultra-Liberals? I bet you were all about impeaching Bush for lying and kids dieing.

    I got give Kucinich the consistency award on this one.
