War

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/398597/obamas-unconstitutional-attempt-shift-blame-his-losing-isis-strategy-andrew-c

President Obama has asked for Congressional approval to wage war against ISIS.  President Obama is the commander in chief of the armed forces of the United States and so already has the authority to wage war against ISIS.

He has also asked for that authority to be limited to three years.  Does that mean that President Obama has a plan to defeat ISIS in less than three years?  Or does it mean that if ISIS can hold out, they win in three years?  President Obama also wants to be prevented from using ground troops.  He is the President, if he does not want to use ground troops, then don't use them!

Perhaps President Roosevelt should have asked for authority to fight Nazi Germany for three years, without ground troops, then we could avoided the Invasion of Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge.  This is no way to fight a war, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
