Hey, Yeah, there was no formal "declaration of war" by Congress under Johnson in the Vietnam War either.
So you can stop barking up that tree now.
The Constitution does not specify the format for a declaration of war.

Check your facts, dufus.
Like Holder is going to send to prison the people who gave so much money in bribes to Obama, it was only Christopher Dodd in the entire Congress they gave more money to.
That was some powerful kool ade you drank this morning. You might want to go check yourself into a clinic about now.

Are you going to burn the country down if the American people reject your Marxist communist lying fraud?
Since DC is 80 percent black, what should Romney do when Obama's base begin to burn down the nation's capital?
Should President Romney put the nation's capital under marshal law?
Should he shoot them to save the government?
... well? What should President Romney do when Obama's base tries to destroy the country because they are opposed to democracy?
This idiot's never been right about anything. That's why he's a BIRFER.

EU announces they will lift the ban on shipping arms to Syria.

Back to check-mate.
So, Obama will send US planes to be shot down by Russian missiles.

Sounds like a plan.

Congress authorized Clinton to send troops to Bosnia.
Congress authorized Clinton, under the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, to drop bombs on Iraq for four days.
Congress authorized Johnson to use military force in Vietnam under the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution.
So if the Iraq War was unconstitutional, so were all conflicts and wars since WWII - all of them authorized by Congress.
Liberals just like to play the "double standard card" when it suits their bias.
Technically, that's the argument many have made. Because Constitutionally, there is no option to use a 'limited war.'
But Congress has created a means to sidestep an all out declaration.

You were doing real well there until your last two sentences to make it political.

<quoted text>housing prices going up are in part the bellweather of the OBAMA ADMINISTRATION PUSHING SUBPRIME MORTGAGES --- AGAIN. So, we'll have another housing bubble and eventual financial collapse due to (Democrats in) government's social meddling in the housing sector and pushing bad loans for "racial justice." And Dumb Dave and the rest of the Obot Topix Brigade will be writing about how it was Bush's fault.
Eyes open people. History is repeating itself.
lol! I love the comedy of idiotic cons.

<quoted text>the bottom line is that no matter what bad decisions, policies, actions or inactions by the Obama administration, Dumb Dave HAS TO post in Obama's defense. he can't help himself without some kind of 12-step program. then there's that monkey see, monkey do theory. i.e., in 2009, Dumb Dave started to crave dog meat, and i'm not talking about Michelle.

McCain is a Republican. Tough shit for you.

IS there anything about America that you don't hate??

You lie about your location and claim Californians are smarter than other Americans, while you sit in a Nursing Home in PA.

CA is a deeply Democratic State. Which further proves your insanity.

You just come here to say stupid things.

<quoted text> The irony is if republicans had accepted even some of Obama's recommendations to streamline and make more efficient the government bureaucracy, namely the Veterans Affairs Department , veterans would be happier in receiving their benefits more promptly without the mess of red tape.
whose responsibility will it be when the mess called Obamacare--a true bureacratic nightmare--hits the public starting with the 15 page questionnaire that government hired "navigators" will have to help citizens fill out? talk about a mess of red tape AND a major loss of privacy and increase in identity theft.

How can seemingly intelligent people be so stupid?
Liberals are singing and dancing in the streets because consumer confidence is up and the stock market is rising.
The Federal Reserve is printing money at full speed until investor confidence runs out or the ink runs dry.
The present day conundrum began in the Carter era in 1978 when a Democrat Congress and the Carter White House gave the Federal Reserve a mandate to fire up the printing presses to fight unemployment and inflation during a time of high unemployment.
It only serves to weaken the dollar.
The Fed is now buying $85 billion in new assets each month and still failing to make a dent in the country’s unemployment crisis.
We are $16 trillion in debt, more than 12 million people looking for work and this administration is intent on “solving” the problem in large part by printing more money.
We're becoming a country of Homer Simpsons. DOH!

<quoted text> Are you daffy? Eric Holder wasn't 'busted ' for revealing that he authorized a legally attained limited warrant(from a U S federal judge) on looking at a Fox reporters phone records and e-mails. FoxNews has done it before--it has released sensitive national security secrets that have endangered the lives of U S Intelligence and military personnel.
Holder was turned down by two federal judges before he judge-shopped for a third who would trash the Constitution to help Obama.

Your Bush presided over the worst meltdown in generations.
How many jobs lost?
How much owed for war?
How much "loaned" to bailout wall st.?
How much money handed out to billionaires?
$50 million each! Per Bush year!
To the richest on earth. Free money gov help.
Hey byytch!
That was your team in action!
(and you defend these child killers?)
Your precious democrats screwed the pooch beginning in the Clinton era loosening requirements for bank mortgage loans and continuing to resist every effort to rein it in to avoid the impending crisis of which they were repeatedly warned about all the way up until 2007.

The Democratic Party, led by President Bill Clinton, threatened to prosecute banks who didn't comply with the regulators demands.

Now go get a tissue. You're not paying attention.

Perhaps you can explain the concept of redlining, why banks used it, and why it coincidentally coincided with racial boundaries.
In other words, why did all the people who never paid their bills and drove down real estate value live in black neighborhoods?
Banks don't care what color you are. They only care if you pay your goddam bills on time. The only color they see is green.
Perhaps if you wouldn't burn down your own goddam neighborhood so goddam often, you might get a real bank to make a loan in there.
Maybe if there were fewer drive-by shootings and you didn't stack the bullet-riddled corpses to the rafters in the morgues every goddam weekend, you might get a real bank to make some loans in your neighborhood.
Maybe if you became civilized, you might reap the benefits of civilization.
Perhaps if wealthy entrepreneurs wouldn't relocate their businesses after overdeveloping and destroying the natural ecology of the original site for their business in predominantly poor, working class neighborhoods made up of low-wage poor black americans and elderly folk on fixed incomes and instead take a more corporate socially-responsible role then we wouldn't have social unrest in declining regions of our cities and towns.
