The Lawless Presidency of Obama

With everything negative said about president Bush’s war efforts, president Bush has been vindicated in every way. First, he has been vindicated by the find of 550 metric tons of "yellowcake" in Iraq. Second, he has been substantiated by the actions of his predecessor Barry Hussein Soetoro. President Soetoro was one of the voices that attacked president Bush. President Soetoro promised to end the war in Iraq and bring troops home when elected. Actually, president Soetoro continued the Iraq war, he has escalated the Afghanistan war and he has started a war with Libya.

It’s exasperating because of Democrat’s destructive partisanship gamesmanship. At the detriment of the American people, Democrats continue to play with America’s security concerns.

How can one forget the incessant hounding that President Bush received because no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq? That is until July 5 2008.

AP News reported July 5 2008 The removal of 550 metric tons of "yellowcake" — the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment — was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam's nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions. Iraq has no nuclear power plants so the only possible reason for having 500 metric tons of “yellowcake” was for WMD’s.

Did the Obama media report this? Not in any discernable way which made the connection between this material being found in Iraq and president Bush’s claim that Saddam Hussein was gathering material for WMDs. The myth still persists that there were no WMDs found in Iraq. This was clearly not the case. (see story)

I have to say that my greatest disappointment with Democrat partisans is how they played around with American’s security while at the same time attempting to discredit president Bush on the war. Democrat partisans called the Iraq war, “Bush’s war” even though the president went to Congress in strict compliance of the war powers act. In both Afghanistan and Iraq president Bush sought after and obtained congressional approval to engage in war activities. (see Afghanistan Congressional Authorization and in the Authorization for the Use of Military Force Against Iraq)


Afghanistan Congressional Authorization

Congressional Resolution Iraq

Congressional Resolution on Iraq

What is so amazing is Sen. Barry Hussein Soetoro was so concerned that president Bush would use the Iraq Resolution to attack Iran that Sen. Soetoro sponsored a bill to prevent such an occurrence. (see below)

Whereas any offensive military action taken by the United States against Iran must be explicitly authorized by Congress: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That nothing in the Authorization for the Use of Military Force Against Iraq (Public Law 107-243), any act that serves as the statutory authority for Executive Order 13382 or Executive Order 13224, any resolution previously adopted, or any other provision of law including the terms of Executive Order 13382 or Executive Order 13224 shall be construed to authorize, encourage, or in any way address the use of the Armed Forces of the United States against Iran. Sponsor Sen. Barack Hussein Obama

Clarifying That the Use of Force Against Iran

If the president understands that congress must be consulted before acts of war as demonstrated by his “View Clarifying that the use of Force against Iran” then why has he not consulted congress with his military action in Libya (see here and here)

Thus one can only conclude that based on president Soetoro actions as a Senator, where he sponsored a bill to force president Bush to comply strictly within the war powers act, the president is well aware that he is in violation of the wars power act and is purposely attempting to flaunt the law.

There can be no question that president Soetoro is willfully acting lawlessly regarding his illegal Libyan war. Something that president Bush did not do in any conflict, which he was engaged although Democrats falsely accused him of starting an illegal war.
