This post by my blogging partner Nancy Jane Moore is so important that instead of replying to her via the comments field, I'm going to make a separate post. I want to make certain people read what she wrote.
My esteemed and learned colleague, who likes to call herself a "recovering attorney," has uncovered some key insights from several law professors. Their point? The Constitution does indeed give Congress the power to stop George W. Bush from escalating the war in Iraq.
Read Nancy's post and follow the links. I stand by much of what I said about Rep. Nancy Boyda's recent interview on Iraq, but I do retract my support of Boyda's belief that Congress is powerless to stop Bush.
If what these professors are saying is really true, then it is time for the Democratic Congress to stand up to the bully-in-chief who is occupying the White House. It's time for the Boydas, Pelosis and Reids of this nation to act.
