Will Obama get congressional approval to bomb Syria?


Or will Obama a make a unilateral decision to invade Syria?

Predictions?

This is a tough prediction for me given his less than stellar track record of acting lawful and following the constitution.

you don't have to like what he does and that's fine a lot of the time i don't like what he does either but don't be so melodramatic. It's not unconstitutional.

Agreed. If they go through with this Syria deal, I hope it blows up in their faces.

I just don't see how removing Qaddafi wasn't unconstitutional given the fact that the DoD did not acquire congressional approval under Obama's command.

Anyway, do you at least agree that Obama should acquire congressional approval before we invade Syria?

Why that emoticon? Did you forget about Libya? He invoked the war powers act as his authority, then violated the rules of the act.

What kind of racist would withhold approval to bomb the living shite out of Syria from our historic first black President ?

"Where Congress is not willing to act, we're going to go ahead and do it ourselves." -- Barack Obama

"We can’t wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job. Where they won’t act, I will." -- Barack Obama

"If Congress thinks that what I’ve done is inappropriate or wrong in some fashion, they’re free to make that case. But there’s not an action that I take that you don’t have some folks in Congress who say that I’m usurping my authority. Some of those folks think I usurp my authority by having the gall to win the presidency. And I don’t think that’s a secret. But ultimately, I’m not concerned about their opinions — very few of them, by the way, are lawyers, much less constitutional lawyers.” -- Barack Obama


Does this sound like a president who gives a frick what Congress thinks?

Didn't think so.

I think the president should blow up whomever whenever he wants using all the resources available in HIS arsenal without impediment from any part of HIS government.

He doesn't have to do so if given a resolution by the UN.

UN resolutions don't supercede our own congress. That's crazy talk if that's what your suggesting.
