And to think this idiot thinks for some strange reason he is qualified to be president.  Adam Leech, Seacoastonline:

“The President has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran and if he does, as foreign relations committee chairman, I will move to impeach,” said Biden, which was followed by a raucous applause.

Just imagine any republican getting raucous applause for fundamental ignorance of the Constitution of the United States.

After Joe Biden removes his foot from his mouth, he should take time to actually read the Constitution.

One, the President is designated the Commander-in-Chief.  As such the President has the authority to to attack any country as he sees fit.  This power neither new nor unused by various Presidents, such as Thomas Jefferson, Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter, and B.J. Clinton, here here and here.

This is not to say that all unilateral past uses of force were wise.  They however were quite constitutional.

Two, Biden has utterly no power to iimpeach anybody.  The House of Representatives has the sole power of impeachment.  Given, Biden’s support for the past presidents, waging war without congressional approval hardly seems to be an issue for Biden, provided the President is but a democrat.

Hat Tip: Memeorandum.

One Response to “How Dumb to You have to be to a Democrat?”

  1. Well, obviously when Biden says he will “move” to impeach, he means he’ll resign from the Senate and run for the House of Representatives.
