Speaker Boehner questions Obama on War Powers Act

The Agonist

I applaud House Republicans and the few Democrats who are pushing back on Obama’s twin illegal wars in Yemen and Libya.

I don’t care if this is a partisan gambit on the part of House Republicans. And I don’t care of Boehner has flip-flopped on the issue.

Of course, the Hosanna Obama chorus will disagree. After all, he is the President. We shall obey without question. That’s authoritarian logic and I’ll have nothing of it.

Heh, so now those fighting anti-war Republicans will attack the endless wars of Obama while Democrats who were anti-war while Bush was in power will staunchly defend the illegality of the wars.
