David Boaz, talking to Judge Napolitano from FreedomWatch, asks: where did all the anti-war rallies go? The constitutionality/budget implications/moral questions were suddenly no longer at issue once they became Obama's wars.
Boaz makes a good point. When going to war-and really, what else is it?-the Constitution requires presidents to defer to Congress. This time, we are bombing a country that clearly isn't a threat to US interests, not with the permission of Congress, but the 'permission' of the UN. Congress wasn't even in session at the time, and President Obama made the announcement from Brazil. Given how much they wailed about George Bush's actions violating the Constitution and killing innocent people, shouldn't liberals be really angry right now?
