Remember when dissent was the highest form of patriotism? I do.
This is especially interesting coming from the same Hillary Clinton who slammed a top American general for suggesting progress was being made in Iraq. The same Hillary Clinton who voted to cut funding for our troops in Iraq. The same Hillary Clinton who spent years opposing the war in Iraq.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is questioning the priorities of lawmakers criticizing the U.S. intervention in Libya.
She’s asking bluntly, “Whose side are you on?”
Setting up a showdown on Libya, House Republicans agreed Wednesday to vote on dueling measures, one to give President Barack Obama limited authority to continue U.S. involvement in the NATO-led operation against Moammar Gadhafi and the other to cut off funds for military hostilities.
So those who believe Barack Obama needs congressional approval to wage war are somehow on the other side? So does that mean Attorney General Eric Holder is on the other side? Because he was one of the top Obama lawyers who agreed that Obama needed congressional approval. One of the top administration lawyers Obama ignored.
And this guy must really be rooting for the other side. Here’s what that traitor said in 2007:
“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”
The anti-American guy in question? Then-Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill). He was running for president at the time and was extolling the values of a White House that operates within the confines of the law. It should be pointed out that the law hasn’t changed since 2007. Same law. He just views it differently now that he’s in power, apparently.
