I heard Webb on the radio this morning discussing his Iran invasion legislation. What a joke, and Jimmy Barrett (local morning radio host) didn't have the sense to call him on it. Webb goes on about how this will keep President from invading Iran without congressional approval. Then in his explanation of the bill talks about how the constitution only gives power to President to act on his own to repel invasions . In other words, everything his bill attempts to do is already in place according to the powers granted to Congress and the President by the Constitution. He even noted the President had to follow this procedure before Iraq war. He did and Congress approved. If Congress doesn't want to allow war in Iran or to continue Iraq for that matter they can stop it, they just don't have the gonads to do it. More waste of gov't time on political BS plain and simple. Webb is one pompous arse

More garbage from the cowardly party. This from the same spineless F***s that could not muster the courage to pass any more then a NON-BINDING resolution. How does he think he can push that through? They could end everything tomorrow if they had a set.

Give the democrats credit. They keep positioning themselves for an onslaught in 08 by doing nothing. Attacking the other side with no plan of their own worked in 06. The only problem may be that once all the attacks are exhausted and there is no one else to attack, they may have to start digesting each other. Sooner or later someone on that side will have to stand up and take a stand, then the real democrat can stand up and be counted.

It is pretty sad. It's like they are sitting around waiting for the pubs to implode. They will need to get off their asses soon or suffer.

I told you all. He looks and acts like a republican because he is, at heart, a republican.
Actually this is typical liberal democrat legislating at its finest.

Lets pass a law that does something the constitution or some already existing law addresses. The reason we do this is because we are to chicken **** to live up to our obligations as they now exist, so instead lets play politics with it. This way we can talk tough without doing anything.

The Repubs are practicing but don't have the experience to be in the same leaque as the Dems on this type of ****.

I don't, and I didn't say there was. I've come to realize this gradually over the past 10 years or more. My point is since the Dems were in control most of my voting life they have had more practice/experience at this sort of thing. Webb is acting like a typical Dem.

Why do you think he is acting like or is a Pub?

placation and appeasement of the enemy is part of the liberal agenda.
How about a non-binding resolution that prevents Iran from nuking anyone????
Do about as much good.

One day you guys say that the liberals have no agenda.
The next day you define what the liberals agenda is.
Somebody needs to quit waffling.
The liberal agenda is to give socialism just one more try. Don't think I have ever waffled from that.

Their political agenda is to pay back "shrub" for not letting them change State and Federal election laws to steal the election.

It infuriates them beyond reason......

Seems to me that has been the agenda of this Republican president. He has done more to promote socialized medicine than Hillary.
You're kidding right? What would we have right now were not for the Republicans during the "Hillary care" days? Besides, I don't think the above-mentioned garbage would have passed without quite a few Democrats, probably including Hillary.
