Obama Outsmarting Congress Again
When Virgina D-Senator Tim Kaine took to the floor of the Senate on June 25, 2014 to ponder why the U.S. is clinging to documents that were written BEFORE we went into Iraq. Kaine argued that those conflicts are not the same as we are involved in now:
"...we drift from crisis to crisis— Syria, Iraq, POW exchanges — without grappling with the underlying document that initiated our entrance into war 13 years ago. We cannot afford further delays.”
Tim Kaine is a close ally of President Obama. Mr. Obama is a constitutional scholar.
I am suggesting that Kaine and his counterparts in the House, who overwhelmingly passed a law reiforcing that Congress must declare war, just like the U.S. Constitution says.
All these talking head politicians like Graham, Rubio, McCain and Ayotte have complained non-stop of the President's foreign policy moves. These same politicians are the ones RUNNING away from Congress taking responsibility for the declaration of war.
Obama is calling their bluff by having Kaine, John Garremendi (D-CA) and others reinforce the notion that Congress's job is to declare and authorize a war.
Our country is war weary and these chickens (Graham, Rubio, McCain and Ayotte)are afraid to attach their names to a new war. They pound the drums for war in front of the cameras. They go on the floor and spout about Obama's weakness, yet they do little or NOTHING to write articles of war themselves.
These neocons are weak legislatures who can get nothing done, so they complain about the administration. They are experts at doing nothing and restricting this President from doing his job.
Barack Obama has very FEW executive actions compared to George W. Bush, yet John Boehner is considering suing Obama, not impeaching him for his use of executive actions:
"This is not about impeachment," Boehner said. "This is about faithfully executing the laws of our country."
What a joke.
Boehner is upset that Obama would bypass a crippled Congress with executive actions to aid the people of the country. Boehner is so pissed that he can't stop Obama from executing his oath of office WITH Congress, that he wants to take him to court to ensure Obama will be an ineffective lame duck.
Mr. Boehner, Mr. McConnell and the rest of you idiots...The President is smarter than you are. You are on the wrong side of history and will go down as the WORST Congress in our nation's history.
Good luck with that.
