Clinton: Obama Will Ignore Congress on Libya War

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by bearice, Apr 3, 2011.

  1. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a classified congressional hearing that the Obama regime would ignore Congress if it tried to rein in the unconstitutional war in Libya, but that the administration would send press releases to lawmakers, according to news reports.

    When Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) asked Clinton during the briefing what the regime’s response would be to Congress exercising its constitutional authority over war, the Secretary said Obama would proceed with the war anyway, according to a senior Republican lawmaker in attendance cited by Talking Points Memo. Apparently the regime has “legal opinions” that justify the “kinetic military action.”

    The Secretary’s answer reportedly surprised even attendees because “Clinton plainly admitted the administration would ignore any and all attempts by Congress to shackle President Obama's power as Commander in Chief to make military and wartime decisions,” TPM reported. Other news reports citing lawmakers reported similar findings.

    "regine", lol. I quit reading there and went over to "Ben Ali Reports".
     
  3. 1. If Obama does this, he should be impeached.

    2. The Executive Branch's powers need to be scaled back. Both Bush and Odumbo act as though they were elected King or Despot. We need to restore "checks and balances".
     



  4. Impeached...?? you would wear lipgloss and kneel in front of Obama and then call for him to be impeached.
     
  5. Obama is killing innocent babies.

    You haven't heard? It's OK when a liberal does it.

    For haliburton, and more oil.
     
  8. Congress can certainly cut off funding for the war action. If Boehner had any backbone there would already be a resolution on the floor over this. The problem is many republicans are still under the sspell of neo-cons, who apparently want us to attack every country in the middle east.

    Congress will be too gutless to impeach Obama unless he gets caught getting a blow job from an intern and then lies about it.
     
  10. Interesting typo, sspell, like the Nazi SS.

    As a former neocon, you act now as if you have had the spell broken.

    What, did some witch cast a spell on you that made you go all weak in the knees during the Bush era when Limbaugh and Coulter spouted their neocon doctrine which you lauded as dead on correct when the left pointed out the insanity of their neocon positions?

    Too funny AAA...you must be a politician to be so adept at flipper/flopper duplicity.
