Don’t worry. This has no relevance now. This was when Bush was in power. The idea of impeaching Obama for unilaterally starting a war is silly. Just ask Time Magazine or Politico or Atlantic. The War Powers Act has no meaning. The Framers always intended that one man should be able to start a war any time he feels like it.
Sure Joe Biden disagreed, but that was in 2007. The law stopped applying in 2008. All laws did. And if you disagree, well you’re probably racist. (But only if you disagree after 2008)
Presidential hopeful Delaware Sen. Joe Biden stated unequivocally that he will move to impeach President Bush if he bombs Iran without first gaining congressional approval.
Biden spoke in front of a crowd of approximately 100 at a candidate forum held Thursday at Seacoast Media Group. The forum focused on the Iraq war and foreign policy. When an audience member expressed fear of a war with Iran, Biden said he does not typically engage in threats, but had no qualms about issuing a direct warning to the Oval Office.
“The president has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran, and if he does, as Foreign Relations Committee chairman, I will move to impeach,” said Biden, whose words were followed by a raucous applause from the local audience.
Biden said he is in the process of meeting with constitutional law experts to prepare a legal memorandum saying as much and intends to send it to the president.
Wait… can we get a copy of that memorandum. It might come in handy and might help make Biden president.
