Senate passes Libya resolution ... three weeks ago.

Comment: I submit this article from three weeks ago not so much to defend or endorse Pres Obama's decision to commit to the action in Libya, or to state that his Constitutional obligations were strictly satisfied (the case for that is flimsy, even in light of this article) ... but I do think that there is a level of intellectual dishonesty by Senators saying they weren't consulted at some point given the very fact they signed off on the concept of a no-fly zone three weeks ago.

It comes dangerously close to the realm of voting for it before voting against it. One wonders if appointed Senators would squirm so much, would participate in interventionist policies and acts and spend so much of their time having retract their behavior as these elected ones do.

Freaking insanity!

It's weird. I feel like I'm playing devil's advocate here, but i really don't think Senators should get to have their cake and eat it too, as seems to be the case here.
