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)
Congressional Resolution 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)
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.
