you said that far more tactfully than I would have.

Sen. Webb is absolutely correct in everything he said.
Sorry, Progressives, but a UN resolution does not trump the U.S. Congress. Does the UN ever pay for anything?

President Clinton had no clue, just lobbed missiles at them. President Bush (Dubya) had just enough Nat. Guard experience (or thought he did) to be dangerous, and now President Obama is making things worse. Maybe McCain would have been a better choice? At least Sen. Webb has creds @ war and foreign policy.

It's more than little absurd to criticize the President for the fact that the "opposition is not a define entity." That is what he has been presented with and has led him to proceed to deliberation...The Imperial Presidency was a gift of the FDR/Harry Truman White House during World War II and something we have to put up with or figure out a way to return to the Constitution.

You know, for a president who campaigned on "I voted against the war in Iraq", he sure is quick to build up in Afghanistan and jump in to Libya. Lack of experience is showing, Barry. Stick to your NCAA bracket choices...

I would agree with the constitution and for the president to seek authority from congress before bombing, but for the fact congress can't agree on anything, especially this congress.

Anything Obama would want, the gop would block it, just because.

If congress ever did decide, it would take so long that quadaffi afi afi would have died from old age.

TEX has been missing Bush daily for over 2 years now. I have not the words that could be said here to express my true feelings about our wonderful president however I will offer the folowing: I have always felt that God in his wisdom never created anything that was 100% useless for example, ticks,fleas, snakes, and all other such vermin are bound to have some purpose in the scheme of things. recent events have shaken the belief expressed above.

that's kind of like telling someone that it is hoped that the next your mother chases it, the garbage truck runs over her.

I voted for McCain/Palin for the same reason you did. I wasn't concerned as some were that McCain would not be able to finish his term, since I felt that Palin could do a much better job than Nerobama. I read McCain's autobiography before the election, and can't help but wonder where we would be as a country if this community organizer, socialist, Ivy League, snothead, dork [to borrow a few of your words] had not won. We can only hope that this is his first and last term in office. He believes that he has all the power, and I am glad that Webb and other Dems are beginning to see that Obama is not capable of leading the country.
