DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Dumbo’s Libyan Dodo riles “Rats, liberal democrat congresscritters riled by Barack Obama war on Libya, from:John Bresnahan and Johnathan Allen, Politico:

A hard-core group of liberal House Democrats is questioning the constitutionality of U.S. missile strikes against Libya, with one lawmaker raising the prospect of impeachment during a Democratic Caucus conference call on Saturday.

Reps. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), Donna Edwards (Md.), Mike Capuano (Mass.), Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), Maxine Waters (Calif.), Rob Andrews (N.J.), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), Barbara Lee (Calif.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.) “all strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the president’s actions” during that call, said two Democratic lawmakers who took part.

A self-profession professor or constitutional law ought to be able to explain the constitutional basis for wagin war on Libya without Congress consent, invoking the War Powers Act or declaring the action to self-defense.   To date,. Obama has done none of the preceding and has flown the coop to Brazil rather than do his constitutional duty.

Honey Where is My Viagra Award, where Politico finds elected representatives who question the constitutionality of Dumbo’s War on Libya, Hill only finds certified dingbats, like Ralph Nader and Micheal Moore, from Hill:

Former presidential candidate Ralph Nader says that President Obama should be impeached for committing war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The consumer advocate and former presidential candidate said in an interview that aired Friday that Obama has committed “war crimes” on the same level as President Bush.

Anti-war filmmaker Michael Moore sharply criticized the president’s authorization of military strikes in Libya and a cadre of liberal House Democrats are questioning the constitutionality of the Libya operation.

Nader is two all beef patties short of a Big Mac and Moore has never pass up on one.    Hill by only naming wacko’s as opposing Dumbo’s War on Libya is attempting to marginalize Dumbo’s opposition.

  1. It’s a country with huge oil reserves. How quaint of Congress to think the President has to inform them when he goes to war with a country that has huge oil reserves.

  2. Oil reserves, or lack thereof, are a constitutionally and legally moot issue.
