The president does NOT have the power to wage war/conflict.
The U.S. Congress DOES. Resolution H.J. Res. 114 authorized President Bush to use the Armed Forces of the United States against Iraq.
Just like Congress authorized Clinton to send troops to Bosnia.
Congress also authorized Clinton, under the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, to drop bombs on Iraq for four days.
That's how it works. Like it or not.
Actually Carol, you're wrong. You're forgetting one part of the resolution that Bush used as a pretext to invade Iraq;
(b) PRESIDENTIAL DETERMINATION- In connection with the exercise of the authority granted in subsection (a) to use force the President shall, prior to such exercise or as soon thereafter as may be feasible, but no later than 48 hours after exercising such authority, make available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President pro tempore of the Senate his determination that--
(1) reliance by the United States on further diplomatic or other peaceful means alone either (A) will not adequately protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq or (B) is not likely to lead to enforcement of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq; and
(2) acting pursuant to this joint resolution is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorist and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.
There were UN inspectors on the ground in Iraq but George W didn't like the fact that they weren't finding what he wanted them to find.
You're also wrong in your assertion that Congress authorized Clinton's intervention in Bosnia. They didn't and several Republicans including a certain Governor of Texas voiced dire predictions of a prolonged conflict and thousands of troops coming home in body bags and accused Clinton of "nation building". The whole thing was resolved in a matter weeks with no American lives lost. A few years later that Texas Governor George W. Bush embarked on exactly what he and other Republicans criticized Clinton for and we ended up in a prolonged conflict with over 4000 dead and thousands more maimed for life both physically and emotionally. He also did not need Congressional approval to bomb suspected sites in Iraq.

Ain't this special -- another thug with no respect for the Constitution (at least not the 2nd Amendment) placed in a position of extreme power. We've got to do better than this! Looks like it's about time to get ready to let the Senate hear from the people -- sounds to me like this guy needs to be stopped.

HEY STUPID! James Comey was Deputy Attorney General under George W. Bush. The program that your right wing smear site cites wasn't anti gun nitwit, it stiffened penalties for the use of a gun in the commission of a crime. Only a demented, delusional cretin like you would consider that to be anti 2nd Amendment.

HEY STUPID! Greece's problems don't have anything to do with any kind of "socialist policies" but from the fact that they were suckered into joining the Euro zone and in the process lost control of their currency. Other countries like Sweden, Norway and Denmark all of which nitwits like you would describe as "socialistic" didn't buy into that scam and are doing just fine.
By the way moron the Obama phones that right wingers love to trot out is actually a 28 year old program called Lifeline that was signed into law by Ronald Reagan and renewed by George HW Bush.

Sure Sweden is doing just fine. ROTFLMAO-you are an idiot.

Sweden just went through unprecedented rioting.

One recent government study showed that up to a third of young people aged 16 to 29 in some of the most-deprived areas of Sweden's big cities neither study nor have a job.

A similar study said that up to a third of of young "immigrants" in Sweden's big cities weren't working or attending class. Key word was immigrants.

Sounds like the immigrants aren't assimilating well in the various European nations which accept immigrants.

You silver spoon rednecks, wheat thin crackers, & Honky Tonk Men are just pure racist &, call anyone socialist & plenty derogatory names if they don't choose your slave master plantation approach. Everyday I see Real Dave exposing your racist verbiage & you all brush it as normal conversion.

An overwhelming majority of Americans said that the economy and unemployment should take precedence over the Congressional investigations into the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups, the Justice Department's subpoena of Associated Press phone records and last year's deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University released Thursday.

The poll found that 73 percent of American voters nationwide believe that dealing with the economy and unemployment should be a higher priority than the investigations. Fewer than a quarter of Americans — 22 percent — believe that the investigations should be the higher priority.

speaking of FOX BS....

The Department of Justice claims it has proof it alerted the parent company of Fox News of a subpoena used to obtain the phone log records of Washington correspondent James Rosen as part of an investigation into a 2010 leak of classified information, according to CNN.

"The Justice Department is telling us here at CNN....that it showed a Fox News notification according to the Justice Department of this James Rosen investigation nearly three years ago," CNN's Jim Acosta reported on air Wednesday, per a rush transcript. "To back that up, earlier this afternoon Justice and law enforcement producer Carol Cratty was shown by a law enforcement official documents indicating as much of this notification to the parent company of Fox News, News Corporation."

The Justice Department previously said it had notified News Corp. of the seizure on Aug. 27, 2010, but company officials over the weekend countered by claiming they had no such record. News Corp.'s chief legal counsel at the time also issued a strong denial of ever receiving a subpoena from the government.

Sounds "amazing" - just like what the Democrats are doing here by encouraging illegal Mexican immigration so they can keep power and get votes. In Connecticut, the Socialists just passed a law giving them drivers licenses.
