cuts both ways. Please see Reply 72 (as amended by Reply 80).

Since he's a former law professor, perhaps people will listen this time."

Obama has had no He's had no legal education beyond 3 years of law school, like any lawyer who did not pursue his or her educatiion beyod law school.

Obama then got a job as a lawyer and a part-time job teaching Constitutional law, which he did for a number of years (10?). None of that does means Obama is at the level of a constitutional law scholar or expert.

Lifelong Constitutional law scholars disagree about the War Powers Resolution. What in hell would make someone who taught Constitutional law on a part time basis the final authority on these issues?
