Remember in 2003, when President Bush took us to war “unilaterally”, with nothing more than a coalition of 40 nations, Congressional approval, and the support of 75% of the American people?
Today our president is contemplating war without a coalition, without Congressional approval, and with disapproval of 50% of the American people. I’m so glad the we got rid of the cowboy unilateralist.
But wait, there’s more. Remember our dear multi-lateralist president’s position on military action?
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.
And the vice-president’s courageous stand against a unilateral attack?
I want to make it clear. And I made it clear to the President that if he takes this nation to war in Iran without Congressional approval, I will make it my business to impeach him. That’s a fact. That is a fact.
