54. This is stupid
I'm amazed she would say something this dumb. While it's true that every president since 1973 has regarded War Powers as unconstitutional, definitely not without justification, this kind of comment only makes Congress mad for no good reason. I don't mean just the idiots on the right, but everybody. This is patronizing to an equal branch of government. I'm rather ambivalent on the whole Libya bit myself, or maybe just indecisive, but this is not a situation where you tell Congress to go to hell. Libya just doesn't justify a fight with Congress over War Powers. The difference between who wins and loses there is extremely important to Libyans, but it will minimal impact on most Americans' lives.
