Agree, they either are on drugs or have used drugs.

Well, since it is Congress that runs things then that would make the Tech Boom and bust as well as the 2001 recession and 9-11 and the subprime mess the Republicans fault. And lets not forget, Republicans have had half of Congress since 2010.
And don't forget that for about 2/3 of Bush's time in office he had a Democratic Congress so don't blame the whole subprime mess on Republicans cause that's a bunch of bull and you know it as well as I do! And if 9-11 was the Republicans fault cause it happened on our watch then I guess the Libya mess going on now is the democrats fault cause it's your watch now. No blaming Bush on this one!

Asked. The past tense of "ask" is "asked". Ignorant baggers don't even speak their native tongue.

Annw, for 75% of Clintons time in office and 75% of bush the son's time in office Congress was controlled by Republicans (with the exception of part of one year that the Dems had the Senate.)

Republicans control 50% of Congress during Libya, Syria, Iran......

You are one of the few idiots here. Playing games between a Presidents responsibility and Congresses responsibility. If you don't know what the conversation is about, go ahead and make your party comments. That is what Republicans do.

"TEXT OF A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
TO THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
AND THE PRESIDENT PRO TEMPORE OF THE SENATE
March 21, 2011
Dear Mr. Speaker:(Dear Mr. President:)
At approximately 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, on March 19, 2011, at my direction, U.S. military forces commenced operations to assist an international effort authorized by the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council and undertaken with the support of European allies and Arab partners, to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe and address the threat posed to international peace and security by the crisis in Libya. As part of the multilateral response authorized under U.N. Security Council Resolution 1973, U.S. military forces, under the command of Commander, U.S. Africa Command, began a series of strikes against air defense systems and military airfields for the purposes of preparing a no-fly zone. These strikes will be limited in their nature, duration, and scope. Their purpose is to support an international coalition as it takes all necessary measures to enforce the terms of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1973. These limited U.S. actions will set the stage for further action by other coalition partners....

For these purposes, I have directed these actions, which are in the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States, pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct U.S. foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive.
I am providing this report as part of my efforts to keep the Congress fully informed, consistent with the War Powers Resolution. I appreciate the support of the Congress in this action.

Hey idiot head. Someone else was trying to blame Congress for similar things (back when it was a Democrat Congress). My post was just to remind them what that meant for Republican controlled Congresses. Stop being a dipstick if you aren't going to follow the whole conversation fool.

BTW: The address [Dear Mr. Speaker:(Dear Mr. President:)]
on what you posted is incorrect along with numerous other errors in the memo. If the memo really existed you could link to it.
