    (CNSNews.com) - As a presidential candidate, Sen. Barack Obama (D.-Ill.) emphatically stated that the Constitution does not give the president the authority to unilaterally authorize a military attack unless it is needed to stop an actual or imminent attack on the United States.

    Obama made the assertion in a Dec. 20, 2007 interview with the Boston Globe when reporter Charlie Savage asked him under what circumstances the president would have the constitutional authority to bomb Iran without first seeking authorization from Congress.

    “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,” Obama responded.

    He will simply reason that he is operating under the authority of the U.N.

    He only follows the constitution when it suits him. This is not the first time he has blatantly ignored it.

    That is Obamunism at its BEST

    This POTUS speaks with a "forked tongue!"

    Nothing he says can be believed, and that is a shame. Not that he is that much different than other recent POTUS's. It's just that he is so predictable. You know what ever he says he can be expected to do the opposite :tear:

    I discovered a cool technique that I use to tell when he's lying. Watch his face very carefully if you see his lips move, he's lying.
