TO THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI
Here is a quote regarding the authority of the President to direct a miliatry action:
"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."
Who said that?
Why Kenya's own Barack Obama, back in 2007, denouncing George W. on the topic of bombing Iranian nuclear sites.
Here's another quote:
"I say we go get the motherf&#@er!"
Who said that?
Why, the same birth-certificate challenged Barry Obama, on March 18, 2011 stating his intent to totally disregard his 2007 criticism of the prior commander-in-chief's abuse of authority and abuse some his own self! The intended victim is none other than Muammar Gaddafi, Libyan tyrant (and apparently the only man in the Muslim world who cannot grow a kick-ass beard).
Polls show that Obamacare, which was highly unpopular at the time of its passage, is even less popular today.
So like his predecessors, what does our candidate do to boost his approval rating with an election year around the corner? Why declare war on a third-world country without the proper authority, of course!
And of course, our Americonned citizens, seeing similar visual effects on the news (although not quite as good) as on their Call Of Duty 4 games, stand up and cheer at each missile strike. Another raghead motherf&#%er bites the dust! Our jingoistic culture shining as an example for the world to see.
And Obama Messiah (like Emporer Bush before him) gets away with usurping the Constitution, and murdering a bunch of people who pose no direct threat to the United States.
In short, by demonstrating similar behavior to what he's condemning Gaddafi for.
But it's backfiring a little.
President Barack Obama's authority to order the military action against Libya without congressional approval is being challenged — and congressional critics are using candidate Obama's words against him.
Now most Americans are unfamiliar with that old piece of papyrus they have behind glass in Washington that is the framework for how this country is supposed to work. They thing that the Constitution is more of a suggestion than the law of the country.
Article One, Section Eight of The Constitution grants Congress the power to declare war.
You see, our Founding Fathers were smart. They had just fought a bloody war to escape unjust taxation and tyranny from a monarchy.
There is a reason our government was set up the way it was-to keep the President from doing what our Kenyan Comrade has done (like the Marxist Dubuya did before him), usurping the military which would basically allow him to create a monarchy of his own.
Obama the Messiah.
Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) tore into President Barack Obama's decision to order U.S. air strikes against Libya, opening the door for impeachment while emphatically declaring that Obama violated the Constitution.
"President Obama moved forward without Congress approving. He didn't have Congressional authorization, he has gone against the Constitution, and that's got to be said," Kucinich told reporters, "And I'm raising the question as to whether or not it's an impeachable offense. It would appear on its face to be an impeachable offense," Kucinich said.
I applaud Mr. Kucinich for being consistent. Kucinich wanted to bring impeachment articles against both former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney over Iraq, only to be blocked by his own party's leadership.
Obama said the UN-sanctioned operation was aimed at averting "the humanitarian threat posed by Col. Gaddafi to his people."
The United States could not "simply stand by with empty words" while Gaddafi, who had "lost his legitimacy," was "carrying out murders of civilians" and "threatened more," the U.S. president said.
"It is U.S. policy that Gaddafi needs to go," he added.
I'm looking to see the exception language in the Constitution that refers to a UN-sanctioned operation. I'm having a bit of trouble finding it. Probably because IT'S NOT THERE!
What worries me the most is how willingly our Prez is to cowtow to the United Nations. Remember George H.W. Bush's speech about a New World Order?
I got news for you, people-America is not the top of the food chain in this New World Order.
And don't get me wrong. I do not run the Arizona chapter of the Gaddafi fan club, and I don't dial into Libyan phone sex lines (that would be funny though-what kind of robes are you wearing?), but the plain and simple truth is that this is not about humanitarian issues.
If that were true, we would have acted in Rwanda.
But those countries don't have the same appeal to the Americans as blowing up some Arabs. Even the Bible Belt can get behind that!
Obama-you're gonna get your second term no matter what (although I don't know why you'd want it)-so can we please ix-nay on the or-way and stop spending BILLIONS that we do not have blowing people up?
Or maybe you see yourself as the savior in the Middle East?
Obama may be letting his presidency go to his head a little. A messiah he ain't!
