Hillary, Reid, Pelosi: Need Congressional Authority

Via Breitbart:

Hillary, Reid, Pelosi, Obama – President May Not Attack Without Congressional Authorization

By John Sexton | August 27, 2013

Back in 2007 Democrats were very certain about one thing. A President needs congressional authorization to authorize military force against a nation in the Middle East.

Here’s Sen. Hillary Clinton saying "President Bush must not be allowed to act without the authority and oversight of Congress."

[Here is] Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid [telling] the National Press Club in January 2007, "The president does not have the authority to launch military action in Iran without first seeking congressional authorization."

Nancy Pelosi, his counterpart in the House, was equally certain that President Bush needed congressional authorization to attack…

Obama also gave a speech in Clinton, Iowa in Sep. 2007 in which CNN headlined "Obama to Bush: Don’t Invade Iran." Here again Obama tells the President he does not have congressional authorization to attack:

Where are all of these Democrats on the President’s pending decision to attack Syria?

Once again, that was then and this is Obama.

    Steve, you know better than most that the rules democrats make for others do not apply to themselves. (See Obamacare and a thousand other laws) Do as I say, not as I do.
