It's funny the reaction you get when you point out where Republicans skirt the Constitution.
Also, fucking hell, Spock. I've not seen logical gymnastics like this in awhile.
So, we have one opinion on this thread that basically says that because Trump and Congress aren't on the same page, he is in the right to completely ignore all that "checks and balances" protocol and just do what he wants on a military level without even consulting them. And we have another opinion that has provided an all-time great "move the goalposts" argument that, so far, has gone from:
He'd been previously named a terrorist by Obama, so this is MY GUY finishing the job he couldn't do!
No, dude, Trump was the one who named him the terrorist...
DOES IT MATTER WHO SAID HE WAS A TERRORIST!?!??!
Well, you're the one who brought it up to say that he's been long considered one...
WHO CARES!!???!?! He's a bad person with power in a bad country!!!!!
About on the same level as when the whole "where are the WMDs?" question concerning Iraq was going around, with how it also seemed that it was other countries and groups behind 9/11. I was kind of amused at how quickly the vibe went from "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!! Terror is one the run!!!!" to "Well...uh...look at all the happy faces of those people we freed from a dictator!!!" as if our actual goal in the whole proceedings was to blow off us getting attacked to simply help the common folk in an unrelated company.
Always entertaining to watch the "look at these stupid progressives" people essentially self-owning themselves to illustrate they're no better when it comes to their own fabricated justifications.
