RT: Obama to seek Congress approval for Syria strike

The idea of seeking Congressional approval for another war still appears to be a vague concept for our Constitutional lawyer / Peace Prize-winning President, but this is a step in the right direction. Obama suffers under the illusion that he ought to “let voices be heard” and simply inform Congress and America of his decisions rather than actually asking through the proper legal channels. In Obama’s world, elections mean mandates, legal approval is a matter of letting voices be heard, and “activists say” constitutes evidence. I almost prefer the more straightforward tyrannical approach of George W. Bush in which a war is a war and the war gets declared for clear, warlike reasons, whether or not it “resignates” with the people.
