I don’t have a problem with Lee voting they way he did. I don’t want republicans to be like the democrats and never go against the leadership. I want the Republicans to follow the Constitution. The Congress hasn’t been doing their job for a long time and I don’t want the President to have powers that are not in the Constitution. Lee has been consistent on trying to follow the Constitution. Dershowitz defended the Constitution against the Democrats and Lee feels like he’s following the Constitution now. Conservatives are not going to agree on everything and I don’t feel like… Read more »

You say the Congress should be able to weigh in on declaring war. The day we have a congress that is not filled with a bunch of backstabbing grandstanding tongue wagging pussies that are concerned only with their own political careers you may get me on board with that. Having said that, I don't see that day ever coming. If you and your Republican Buddies had any patriotic balls at all you would have started defending President Trump 3 years ago. We don't need you. Stay out of it. When the term limit vote comes up I am pushing for… Read more »

If the precedent set by Washington is that the President is free to engage in any defensive actions he deems necessary and Congress must approve all offensive actions, and that agrees with the Constitution, and their vote was whether Congress would need to declare war on Iran for any offensive actions… What exactly was the point?I want small government, checks and balances between the different branches. If we can shrink some of the powers they ceded to the executive under Obama by using their TDS, don't we have an obligation to do so? I'm not naive enough to think they… Read more »

It's only appropriate when the president is a warmonger!! Trying to offer peace to n.korea,iran and others is not warmonging!! The president needs not only loosening the rules of engagement, but to exercise his excellent judgement immediately to protect our country.when Congress fights against any decision the president makes they cannot be trusted for anything.bad timing Mike and mitt betrayers!!!

Utah, this guy needs to go along with Romney. Can't believe he is working with Durbin of Illinois with the HB1 Visa's. Now this. Investigations need to be done following who's making money on these HB1 Visa's.

only congress can declare war. but the president has the right to make military strikes at a moments notice when the intel dictates.

Mr. Lee. War. What do you mean by war? Not allowing offensive actions, i.e. limited actions well short of war, that protect American lives? You are out of you mind. Another mealy mouth RHINO.

THERE WAS THREE AMENDEMENTS WITH THIS ORDER… ONE FOR THE 100 SOLDIERS THAT HAD MASSIVE BRAIN DAMAGE, NOT HEADACHES FROM AFTERMATH OF DUMPS ACTION….THE SECOND WAS NO DECLARATION TO CONGRESS NEEDED IF ATTACKING TERRORISTS. THIRD WAS PRAISE TO DUMP FOR KILLING SALAMONI. DUMP HAS NO REASON TO VETO…
