Extreme left is right – Obama on a limb
Far out, man. While John McCain was chomping at the bit to attack Libya, the President was reticent. He moved deliberately and anyone in Congress that wanted to call the shots or offer no shots be fired could have done so. They didn’t say a word until bombs dropped and that was in concert with a coalition and under UN cover. So, what’s the beef?
That Constitution keeps getting in the way.
No harm, now foul. We missed Moammar and hit the runways. Stop the war, I want to get off.
“Kucinich: Obama could be impeached for attacking Libya
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) says President Barack Obama did not have the constitutional authority to order U.S. forces to participate in an attack on Libya.
Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Donna Edwards (D-MD), Mike Capuano (D-MA), Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Rob Andrews (D-NJ), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) "all strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the president's actions" during the conference call, a source told Politico.
Kucinich also released a statement on his website Friday questioning the constitutionality of the president's actions.
"The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation," he insisted.
Former presidential candidate Ralph Nader also said the president was committing "war crimes" in the attack against Libya.
"Why don't we say what's on the minds of many legal experts; that the Obama administration is committing war crimes and if Bush should have been impeached, Obama should be impeached," Nader told Democracy Now! Thursday.”
