The Constitution Aside

There’s another reason why, the constitution aside, there needs to be a Congressional vote on the action against Libya. Our president is president in large measure because he took an unpopular stand on a war in a way that was documented. I want everyone in Congress, in both parties, to tell us where they stand on this, and then to be rewarded or punished later accordingly. Otherwise everyone will be for it before they were against it, or vice versa. Let’s not let the fog of war descend on the floors of Congress themselves.

  1. Pliny the Elder says:

    But he has the French on his side. Isn’t that better than some lame old Congress?
    The text of the Constitution. Political accountability. All this sterile formalism . . . Next thing you know we will expect some degree of intelligent self-governance.

  2. Pliny the Elder says:

    I am trapped in a Married with Children episode, with Al saying this time it’s Kelly and me so how can we be wrong?
    This time it’s the Arab League and the UN . . . .

    Of course, John Yoo also approves, so I’m sold.
