Sigh, Zero, you’re such a dumbass.
So Zero has realized he’s not emperor of the world. So he’s turning to congress for approval to use force in Syria. In his speech he states ……
“I have decided that the United States should take military action against Syrian regime targets,” the president said. He added: “I’m also mindful that I’m president of the world’s oldest constitutional democracy.”
Where did you Dems get this clown?
In a true democracy, he’d be asking the people of the US for permission. In a true democracy, the people would elect the president. But, we don’t live in a democracy. We have a constitutional republic, instead. We democratically elect our representatives, in turn, they and our constitution (as determined by our judges) rule the people.
The president’s role is to execute the laws of the land passed by congress, within the constraints of constitutional authority. Yes, he’s commander-in-chief, but, he’s constrained in the use of the military. US interests must be imminently in peril or he must come to congress. That’s why Reagan didn’t need congressional authority in Grenada, there were American citizens there, and in danger. That’s why Bush went to congress for action in Iraq and Afghanistan. And, that’s why Obama’s involvement in Libya was illegal.
Know your role, dumbass! Or, at least try to understand the form of government you’re supposedly leading.
