Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Hillary: Obama didn’t need Congressional approval to attack Libya, since we had the international community on board.

Her Highness, telling us that we passed John Kerry’s “global test”:

Tapper asked Clinton, “Why not got to Congress?”

“Well, we would welcome congressional support,” the Secretary said, “but I don’t think that this kind of internationally authorized intervention where we are one of a number of countries participating to enforce a humanitarian mission is the kind of unilateral action that either I or President Obama was speaking of several years ago.”

Three things here:

1.  OK, could someone show me where the Constitution requires the president to declare war only with Congressional approval except in cases of other countries joining in the attack on another country?  I must have slept through that in history class, because I don’t see such an exception anywhere!

2.  Why is the Hilldawg talking about “unilateral” action by the U.S. in the case of Iraq, when the international coalition we had back then is twice the size of the international coalition we have in Libya right now?  The fact is that Oba-Mao authorized an attack on Libya without Congressional consultation or approval, and he has less assistance there than we had in Iraq in 2003.

3. This is quite the reversal of stances for Shrillary, which I’m guessing has nothing to do with the fact that the Commie in Chief is a fellow Democrat!

Earlier in 2007, then-Senator Hillary Clinton said in a speech on the Senate floor that, “If the administration believes that any — any — use of force against Iran is necessary, the President must come to Congress to seek that authority.

Oh, and how’s about this bit of inspiration from the administration?

“I think that this had a limited timeframe, a very clearly defined mission which we are in the process of fulfilling,” Clinton said.

“Limited”, huh?  Defense Secretary Gates doesn’t share that sentiment:

On “This Week,” ABC News’ Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper asked Secretary of Defense Gates how much longer we might be there.

“Some NATO officials say this could be three months, but people in the Pentagon think it could be far longer than that. Do you think we’ll be gone by the end of the year? Will the mission be over by the end of the year?” Tapper asked

“I don’t think anybody knows the answer to that,” Gates said.

Glad to see the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.  Friggin’ wonderful.

  1. It’s like everything else this administration does or says. It’s okay cuz a liberal/progressive/commie does or says it. Liberals are schizophrenic and dangerous. They should all be locked up in mental wards. Which wouldn’t be fair to the nuts already there who have enough difficulty recognizing reality. Don’t need more confusion re: real and not real. The libs would really confuse ’em.
