War Is Peace

"Barack Obama has reached Orwellian dimensions in the war against Libya," says the man who got my vote in '08 — Waging Another Unconstitutional War. The author rightly argues that "in the invidious tradition of George W. Bush and his indentured confessor, Justice Department lawyer, John Yoo, now comfortably ensconced on the law faculty of the University of California Berkeley, Mr. Obama is blithely claiming as authority for taking our country into another war 'the inherent powers of the President under Article II of the Constitution,'" and more rightly counters, "This wouldn't pass the laugh test by Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Mason or even Hamilton."

This is why I've harped on the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama as the only way for Congress to retain a shred of it's own legitimacy as a legislative body fit for something other than a Banana Republic.

Sadly, the following video of the "golf summit" between Obama and Ohio Congressman Boehner would seem to strangle such an idea in the crib.
