Washington (CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama told reporters he does not have to answer the question of whether the War Powers Resolution is constitutional.
“There may be a time in which there was a serious question as to whether the War Powers Resolution was constitutional. I don’t have to get to the question,” Obama said during a White House news conference Wednesday.
“We have engaged in a limited operation to help a lot of people against one of the worst tyrants in the world, somebody who nobody should want to defend. And we should be sending out a unified message to this guy that he should step down and give his people a fair chance to live their lives,” Obama added.
Thoughts on this???

My only thought is actually wondering how this would be taken if it were Bush making the decision. I mean, he had congressional approval for his wars, yet he is a war monger. Obama doesn't have congressional approval and nary a word from his staunch supporters about it. Very telling indeed.
