    The Republications had no problems when Bush went to Iraq – the Republicans would criticise Obama if he walked on water – claiming polution.

    Rand Paul has an unrealistic view of the world. He can't hold a candle to President Obama. Then again, Rand supports the right for any business to refuse service to our President based on the color of his skin.

    If the president has requested a resolution, why is Rand Paul's rant relevant? President Obama has evidently done what he's supposed to do. Now it's up to Congress to work over the weekend to get the resolution passed. I'm disappointed that the President's letter is not the news here.

    Search it on youtube "labia vs Iraq". it really explains a lot. I know CNN, this take you followers away from your reports but it still says a lot about the liberal fan base.

    When he says "THEY" won't allow debate, isn't that what filibusters do? Stop the bill from going to the floor for debate? And hasn't he been part of these filibusters? Which means he's one of the they that is halting debate?

    It is also his party that is trying to make all the deals behind closed doors. McConnel feels like he doesn't have to work with the Democrats in the Senate, he's always talking about negotiating directly with the president. If Congress is a separate brach of government, why would McConnell want the president involved? Why don't "THEY" come to an agreement and send it to the president to sign or veto? That is the job of Congress? Congress doesn't have a clause in the constitution where is says they negotiate with the president.

    Obama has of course not met Republican standards for invading Arab countries which include massive loss of American lives, the disappearance of billions of dollars in shrink wrapped 100 dollar bills in packages suitable for carrying off under your arm, secret, no bid contracts and of course lying about the whole rationale for the invasion to being with. I can see why the faux board certified eye doctor would be upset.
