Obama: ‘President Does Not Have Power Under Constitution to Unilaterally Authorize a Military Attack’

"Look into my eyes, you're getting sleepy...pay no attention to that man behind the curtain"

 

Obama made the assertion in a Dec. 20, 2007 interview with the Boston Globe when reporter Charlie Savage asked him under what circumstances the president would have the constitutional authority to bomb Iran without first seeking authorization from Congress.

“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation,” Obama responded.

In a followup question in its December 2007 interview, the Boston Globe asked Obama if the Constitution gave the president the power to disregard a congressional statute putting some type of limit on the way troops could be deployed. Here, too, Obama deferred to the constitutional authority of Congress. “No, the President does not have that power,” Obama told the paper. “To date, several Congresses have imposed limitations on the number of US troops deployed in a given situation. As President, I will not assert a constitutional authority to deploy troops in a manner contrary to an express limit imposed by Congress and adopted into law.” source – CNS News

Back to the future

So that’s what candidate Obama said while trying to make Bush look bad back in 2007. So let’s check in with President Obama in 2011, and see how he has clung to his original ideals:
“President Barack Obama authorized limited military action against Libya on Saturday, saying Moammar Gadhafi’s continued assault on his own people left the U.S. and its international partners with no other choice. The Pentagon said it fired 110 cruise missiles at 20 targets. Obama said military action was not his first choice. “This is not an outcome the U.S. or any of our partners sought,” Obama said from Brazil, where he is starting a five-day visit to Latin America. “We cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people there will be no mercy.” source – Wausau Daily

As we used to say when we were kids – “liar, lair, pants on fire”.
