    I get it. Now he's a Never Trumper. You people never cease to amaze me. Trump can do no wrong. Let's see how you feel when Mike Lee votes to approve the new war powers resolution.

    Trump needs all his powers to be taken from him. He is incompetent, ignorant, narcissistic, and a terribly dangerous president.

    Come on. Did any idiot actually think that a person who had to be bailed out by his daddy, for over a $billion$ dollars, and grabs chicks between the legs while sleeping with and payng off porn workers was going to make a great military leader for our best and bravest men and women in uniform?

    Seriously? People bought THAT?

    I agree. When people have obvious physical, mental or emotional limitations as quantified and measured in past performance, you do not taunt them or embarrass them by publicly demanding more than those limitations constrain. Its just not a nice thing to do. If you have a short person, don't demand they reach for the highest shelf without giving them a stepstool.

    I think the "separation of powers" is going to become a hot topic in the Senate.

    Okay; so I read up on the WPA. And what you're all hoping for - curbing the power of the Commander-in-Chief - is not gonna happen.

    You keep flailing out just like many other liberals on here just hoping something will stick.

    The general was a legal target who was directly responsible for the deaths of 500-600 American soldiers.

    It is quite obvious that you couldn't give a **** about those soldiers as long as you get to make your political point.

    Most soldiers and sailors would give the the middle finger.
    There's a few generals in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia (Khashoggi and 9/11, remember?), Russia and North Korea that have blood on their hands too. Should the US just go around indiscriminately assassinating those generals all over the globe?

    Congress has the authority of the War Powers Act and any act that may lead to a war is their responsibility to either approve or reject. That's all there is to that.

    Only reason for it was impeachment distraction. It has worked to an extent. The only problem is we are between impeachment proceedings. Better luck next time Twump !!!

    Imo, the War Powers Act [edit: see below] was borderline constitutional in that it limited the president's war powers to Iraq and nationless terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS. It did not include other countries.

    The Constitution is very clear who the power to declare war belongs to...and there is no mention that congress can abrogate that power to another branch of government. So there's really nothing for the courts to decide. It's up to congress if they want to exercise their constitutional power to authorize war or not. But what they can't do is to abrogate absolute power over to the executive branch. But since the War Power Act [edit: see below] just gives the president authority to attack Iraq...is that not congress giving the president a limited authorization of war?

    edit: Actually, I was referring to this...not the WPA...
