"A U.S. president has attacked another country, so it's time for the scam artists to pull out their fake constitutional arguments in support of our dear leader. Not all of them are doing so, to be sure -- in fact, it's been rather a hoot to hear supporters of the Iraq war suddenly caterwauling about the Constitution's restraints on the power of the president to initiate hostilities abroad. But I'm told that radio host Mark Levin criticized Ron Paul on his program the other day on the precise grounds that the congressman didn't know what he was talking about when it came to war powers and the Constitution."
