    MSM, Left, Yawn As The War In Libya Becomes Increasingly Illegal

    MSM, Left, Yawn As The War In Libya Becomes Increasingly Illegal

    (by Matthew Knee)

    As the mainstream media strained its resources and even brought on amateurs to power through Sarah Palin’s old emails for the scandal that wasn’t there, a slow-motion constitutional crisis has been unfolding.

    The War Powers Resolution clearly states that president can authorize military action for 60 days without seeking congressional approval. In the absence of congressional approval, the war in question must be wrapped up by the 90 day mark. For the war in Libya, that deadline is Friday.

    The Obama administration claims that the war in Libya is too small to count as a war, and that it is not an US action but a NATO action. Congress disagrees. Speaker Boehner informed Obama yesterday of the upcoming deadline, and today 10 congressmen announced their intention to file a lawsuit.

    That there is so little coverage of the fact that the president quite likely ignoring both the law and Congress to fight a war of choice is a testament to how far professional journalism has fallen. That the so much of the left is suddenly not that interested in the legality of wars or checking out-of-control presidential power is a testament to the hollowness of their ideals.

    This is statement absurd on its face

    Right back atcha, pal. Is English perhaps not your native language? Because you show no understanding of the subject at all. Of course everyone is subject to the law; what's that got to do with it? You claimed nothing about the law, you claimed that if the president should lose a law suit he would be setting himself up for impeachment, which is absolutely ridiculous. How can a court's opinion have any impact on whether Congress decides to impeach the President? Neither Congress nor the President is subject to the courts. They are the judicial branch's equals, not its subjects, and they're each entitled to their own understanding of the constitution. That is basic; if you don't understand that then you shouldn't comment at all about US politics.
