Senator Obama,”President doesn’t have power to unilaterally attack Iran”
President Obama is more than willing to attack Syria unilaterally, without approval of Congress or even the UN to prove his credibility to the world, once he threatened that Assad’s use of WMDs would cross a red line in the sand.
However, the response made by “Senator” Obama on December 20, 2007 to a reporter’s question as to what circumstances would the president (Bush) have the constitutional authority to bomb Iran without first seeking authorization from Congress, says it all.
“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.”
“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.”
This president is a totally political entity, without principled positions on the issues, which are financially destroying America and making decisions that are placing our nation at risk by ignoring our allies and demonstrating obvious weakness and indecision to our enemies.
