    Permission to decide. This isn't hard. If Bush. Could say no, then he was the final word. They merely left it to him to make the decision. Because they didn't declare war, did vote on the final decision, but only vote to let him decide, Bush holds Blane for HIS decision.

    Authorization to go to war amounts to pretty much the same thing.

    You are making it up as you go along.

    No, it only allows the president to decide. It doesn't put them on record as choosing war.

    I think I've been consistent and have backed it up both logically and with links.

    False. THe president is commander in chief---he's the decider, as Bush so eloquently put it.

    fact.

    You just don't like what he said. BUt, that is a fact. A congressional resolution authorizing the President to use force is not a vote to go to war. It's a vote to allow the President to choose war.

    The president can decide to deploy troops. Keeping them there past 90 days is up to congress. And in the case of Iraq, Bush sought that congressional approval before going to war in Iraq. You are not discussing this subject objectively. You are merely making it up as you go along, motivated only by the desire to absolve all your favorite democrats of any complicity in the decision to go to war.
