UPDATE (03.23.2011): 2,000+ Marines On The Ground In Libya

(ABC) We’ve seen Camp Lejuene Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan and now they are joining the fight against Libya. About 2,200 Marines from the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, or 26th MEU will take part.

FLASHBACK (03.19.2011): (Yahoo News) ‘Obama said the United States would not deploy ground troops in Libya.

Whoopsie…

UPDATE (03.23.2011): (Zip) Hillary Clinton, ‘If the administration believes that any, any use of force against Iran is necessary, the president must come to Congress to seek that authority.’

UPDATE (03.23.2011): Joe Biden, ‘Impeach the President!’: HERE

~end~

Reneging on Iraq war related promises made during his campaign and while in office (see video), Obama recently launched his itty-bitty ‘war of peace‘ on Libya without congressional approval. And, as if all the stars aligned, liberal anti-war activists conveniently found itty-bitty soft spots in their itty-bitty hearts reserved for superpower ‘nation building‘ when executed by one of their species.

Sure, Bush dabbled in ‘nation building‘ but he wasn’t kin. The result?

Enough of that. It’s been 5 days since Obama’s war in Libya began. Plenty of time for leftist anti-war hippies groupies to get outside and make themselves heard. Let’s have a look-see:

Alrighty then. Where were we? Oh yeah, doublethink Obama engaging in ‘peacewar‘ without congressional approval…

(CNSnews) As a presidential candidate, Sen. Barack Obama (D.-Ill.) emphatically stated that the Constitution does not give the president the authority to unilaterally authorize a military attack unless it is needed to stop an actual or imminent attack on the United States.

Obama made the assertion in a Dec. 20, 2007 interview with the Boston Globe when reporter Charlie Savage asked him under what circumstances the president would have the constitutional authority to bomb Iran without first seeking authorization from Congress.

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,” Obama responded.

As Commander-in-Chief, the President does have a duty to protect and defend the United States,” Obama continued. “In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the Legislative branch.”

In a followup question in its December 2007 interview, the Boston Globe asked Obama if the Constitution gave the president the power to disregard a congressional statute putting some type of limit on the way troops could be deployed.  Here, too, Obama deferred to the constitutional authority of Congress.

No, the President does not have that power,” Obama told the paper. “To date, several Congresses have imposed limitations on the number of US troops deployed in a given situation. As President, I will not assert a constitutional authority to deploy troops in a manner contrary to an express limit imposed by Congress and adopted into law.”

Now, Ron Paul is calling Obama’s Libya war an impeachable offense and Michael Moore is calling for a return of Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize. Who knows…

  1. Randy G says:

    What Barry said five days go is meaningless, that statement (like all of his statements) have an expiration date. That one was five days evidently…

  2. Zonga says:

    Intentional destabilization of the USA economically, militarily, socially.

    He has committed more than one impeachable offense.

  3. Ali Burrba says:

    I’m thinking of making book on this deal; will Obama finish out his term as president?

    What do you think would be the odds, either way, on that bet?

    • Sad Hill says:

      (Twilight Zone music) I just talked to someone about this. Not the book idea, which is superb by the way, but the bet. Brazil, Trump calling for ‘the birth certificate’ on The View, cats and dogs living together…

      Basically, what Zonga said.

    I’m not writing a book, but making book. A gambling term. I just want the odds on Jug Ears finishing his term. My bookie is a stupid lib so I figure I’ll take him to the cleaners on this one.

  6. Ali Burrba says:

    Well, see this is the problem. Betting on a horse is easy. The horse you bet on comes from an easily researchable lineage. It’s complete racing history can be looked up. You know it’s going to be in a certain race one a certain day at a certain place and time against other certain horses. There’s rules governing the whole event from start to finish.

    With this president though, no rules seem to apply. You go back and compare his performance with other presidents and nothing makes sense. Reality, and the rules governing reality seem to change day by day. How the fudge am I supposed to pick the day he get’s led out of the White House in handcuffs? Hell, by my handicapping chart, the guy should have been in Leavenworth in 2009.

    Sigh.

    Maybe I should bet on who’s going to grow a mustache first, Barry or Michelle?
