Peter King (R-NY) accusing Obama of sidestepping his duties as commander-in-chief.

“He should not be passing it on to Congress,” King told WCBS-TV on Saturday.“I should not be waiting until Congress comes back on September 9th.”

But Talking Points Memo reported that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other Republican leaders argued just the opposite in a joint statement announcing the House would take the matter up for a vote after coming back from recess.
