    The War Powers Resolution of 1973 (50 U.S.C. 1541–1548) was a United States Congress joint resolution providing that the President can send U.S. armed forces into action abroad only by authorization of Congress or if the United States is already under attack or serious threat. 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.

    Well Hooooooleeeeee crap, Homer. I Guess that there Kadaffy Duck was goin to go a-huntin for Americains, Weren't he?

    Since he did that without authorization of Congress,if a U.S.serviceman gets killed, could he now be charged with murder? Just food for thought. Bulge.

    It may be news to some, but this guy and his left-o buds have not the slightest interest in or respect for American law, lifestyle or culture. All they are interested in is pushing the U.S. into the socialist world order where our national sovereignty is solely subservient to the One-Worlders in the U.N. and the leach nations can drain dry the developed nations.

    And just wait for BO & Hiliary to sign up the U.S. to the U.N. Small Arms treaty. Your 2nd Admendent rights will mean squat.

    So go ahead, give this guy another four years so your grandchildren can live like Bangladeshis. But you can be sure, his kids and Chelsea's won't.

    I'm pretty sure the Constitutionality of the War Powers Act has never been tested. If challenged, it might or might not pass muster with the supremes.
    Regardless, Obummer has yet again been exposed as a lightweight blowhard socialist hypocrite.

    He shlt backwards on closing Gitmo. He shlt backwards again on civilian trials for terrorists. Of course, he's right on track with Bush's timetable and plan for exiting Iraq.

    As for Libya, O'numbnuts, f'd around about 30 days while G-daffy pounded the bejeezus out of the opposition killing thousands and routing the rest out of territory they had captured. It makes the ouster of G-daffy considerably more difficult and less likely than it would have been had meaningful action had been taken sooner.

    I'm not convinced we should have taken action earlier - or at all - but Obummer's timing is just one more strategic boondoggle. As a result, there's a very good chance we'll end up with the worst of all possible results. How utterly predictable.

    The American people have been sitting on their hands since Obama got elected ... If the same questions that were asked of Obama would of been asked of any other man or ladie and the proof would not of been presented the shit would of hit the fan ... The fact that Obama is a black man and the riots it would cause if he was ousted must be whats stopping people from pushing for and demanding answeres ... What's really scary is if they continue to sit on their hands this Clown might get re elected and cause some damage thats unrepairable ... I write to my Senator, Congressman, and even the Governor several times a month asking them to demand and get some answers ... They must be on vacation with Obama because I never get a response for any of them other than a form letter ... Yes, Obama is impeachable and he should of been gone long ago ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Candidate Obama vs. President Obama On The Use Of Military Force

    Doug Mataconis · Friday, March 18, 2011

    Four years ago, the Junior Senator from Illinois (Obummer) had this to say about the use of military force:

    2. In what circumstances, if any, would the president have constitutional authority to bomb Iran without seeking a use-of-force authorization from Congress? (Specifically, what about the strategic bombing of suspected nuclear sites — a situation that does not involve stopping an IMMINENT threat?)

    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.

    As Commander-in-Chief, the President does have a duty to protect and defend the United States. In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the Legislative branch. It is always preferable to have the informed consent of Congress prior to any military action.

    As for the specific question about bombing suspected nuclear sites, I recently introduced S.J. Res. 23, which states in part that “any offensive military action taken by the United States against Iran must be explicitly authorized by Congress.” The recent NIE tells us that Iran in 2003 halted its effort to design a nuclear weapon. While this does not mean that Iran is no longer a threat to the United States or its allies, it does give us time to conduct aggressive and principled personal diplomacy aimed at preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

    Hey, President Obama, doesn’t that statement mean that your own decision to authorize action against Libya is prohibited by Constitution?

    I think it does.

    I guess that Obama forgot to eliminate the State of Arizona when he made that speach ... Political Puke that he is ... WPT ... (YAC) ....

    He already has given away the American rights when He agreed with the other nations to go in libya without congressional approval. If the congress don't reel this in within the next 10 days and ask for hearrings then our rights have been willing given up.
    Regan did not need congress approval cause the action that was taken because of the lives take in the bombing of our soldiers. He responded in kind. Bush leageally should have went to congress because we were supposed to be after Big Ben L. not Hussein.
    The BO that is in the Whitehouse now has no respect for the american law.He has a laugh everday about how stupid the american taxpayer is by sitting on their hands.Speakout LOUD you dipsticks. Wild Bill
