Hmmmm, seems I heard a lot of warnings in the early 2000's about how disastrous cutting taxes while starting two wars would be ...
It wasn't just ME with those warnings was it? Did you hear any of them too?
Greatest entitlement expansion, Medicare Prescription drugs under Republican George Bush.

President Bush has remained silent on politics and did not find time to attend the republican convention.

I am stating what the law is and what the requirements are in the 1976 bill.
You are attaching requirements that the law does not contain.
Getting all emotional about it shows that is YOUR real objective rather than understanding the LAW.
Are you now invoking the War Powers Act?

What does that have to do with anything?

Bush did not treat half the country like they were his political enemies nor did he set the climate that led to thousands of individuals being forced to answer gestapo-type questions by the IRS and the FBI nor did his Attorney General unlawfully confiscate journalists' emails and phone calls who were considered the opposition.
There's a big difference...and you know it.
No, I saw the exact same crap under Bush, you don't see it because your nose is firmly planted in the GOP's posterior.

So, what does that mean?
A bill, a resolution, a voice vote?
Does there need to be a document that states "Declaration of War"?
The WW II declaration was a joint resolution, oddly worded, not actually "declaring war', but stating that a state of war existed. It was then "approved" by FDR, which was completely superfluous.
Yes there does, but that could just be me and other literal constitutionalists. FDR and Truman ramped up the imperial powers of the office and its just been expanding ever since. Congress has ceded its authority to the Executive out of cowardice, for plausible deniability.

Yes, because all suits brought lacked the necessary requirements.
Must I point out ONCE again the War Powers Act of 1976
War Powers is irrelevant to the discussion thus further illustrating your complete idiocy.

Maybe he actually sees, it's Kinda like judging a barrel full of fruit (no matter what kind of fruit) and calling them all the same, because of a few rotted ones within it.
Spreading collective hate collectively--Something the "fruit of absolute Ignorance" excels at.
Or maybe its the Church sheltering child rapists from the law and shipping them off to other diocese where they found a new flock of victims.

You people are seriously fckd up defending child predators and the institution that protected them.

The "Patriot Act" updated did not exist prior to the Bush admin and 9/11 BECAUSE....

(DUH).

That does not mean however, that any admins following, have the right to abuse it...and it's ALL quite clearly defined.

That was WAR!
We were NOT 'at war' in Benghazi!
That is WHY there were 'diplomats' there!

No, remember, it wasn't declared a "war". Military action was authorized, sort of like Kent State.

Anyway, when one of you morons acknowledge the fact that Bushco fabricated the "eminent threat" posed by Iraq then you'll have a tiny bit of credibility attacking Obama/Clinton for Benghazi. Until then, you have no standing.
