Constitutional scholar Carl Jarvis was back discussing the need for congress to approve of any military action against Syria. It seems like just yesterday when Congressional Democrats were demanding that George W. Bush seek their approval before invading Iraq. Now they are silent about Obama needing their approval for action against Syria. Seems like a double standard, doesn’t it. The fact is that the congress has abdicated its role in declaring war and allowed the president near unfettered authority to decide when to attack. The Founders clearly didn’t want such a state of affairs and for good reason.
