I believe Krauthammer is right in this opinion.

Something about a broken clock occasionally finding an acorn comes to mind.

It amazes me how these neocons find their sins so much more odious when practiced by someone other than their ilk. Where was Krauthammer when Bush was violating the War Powers act, where was the outrage by Republicans in the congress then.
I agree it should be fixed but how handy that Republicans decide it needs fixing when a Democrat is president, not when a Republican is.

Let's not go overboard. So far as my "little gray cells" recall, Bush asked for and received congressional resolutions supporting his wars. someone will correct me if that is wrong. pl

Cato,
I too believe Krauthammer is right.
Something about a blind sow is right twice a day comes to mind....

The problem of course is that many terms in the Constitution are undefined including "war"!
The anti-inellectualism in America including SCOTUS that if faced with construction of the War Powers Act is unlikely to grant standing even to Members of Congress to contest violation is just indicative that the so-called public intellectual has long faded in the USA. We have decided to have a collective lobotomy in our polity and therefore are now totally in the care of others.

If you truly believe that a congressional approval for actions in Libya wouldn't come with riders attached repealing DADT as well as the health care legislation recently passed you are deluding only yourself.

Bush's party held both chambers of Congress. I think Obama's expectation is that his opponents will use the whole episode as another opportunity to attack his administration.
