LBP National News:Obama Impeachment Bill Introduced to Congress:The Real Joker

North Carolina’s own Representative, Walter B. Jones has just intoroduced legislation to the U.S. House that would make Obama’s over-zealous militry actions impeachable. Jones’ resolution claims that should the President employ the use of offensive military force without approval of Congress, he would be liable to be impeached. “Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya.” Jones’ actions were spurred by Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s efforts to get approval to bomb Syria from NATO and the United Nations instead of from Congress.
Didn’t we all learn in middle school that one of the reserved powers of Congress is the power to declare war and that the President needs its approval to declare it himself? Nowhere does the Constitution give NATO or the United Nations any say in when
and where the U.S. deploys its troops. Jones has received much suppo
rt for his proposed resolution, which reaffirms the importance of the Constitution and that no President is an exception to its laws.2012 March 16
