Liberal Rep Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) Throws Obama’s Own Anti-War Words Back at Him

(By Jonathon M. Seidl, The Blaze) - Now that Obama has committed to military action in Libya, it will be interesting to see if Democrats and anti-war pundits line up to criticize him. Considering an interview today with Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), maybe, just maybe, it will happen.

Dennis Kucinich: “I’m gonna read this and then tell you who said it. ‘The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.’ Now that was Barack Obama who said that on December the 20, 2007. We’ve got to be very sure here that we follow the Constitution, and President Obama didn’t do that.”
