The Real Debate Wisconsin Money Quote: BBA Edition

by folkbum

"The Real Debate Wisconsin Money Quote" is an occasional series highlighting the nonsensical and offensive statements made at Fred Dooley's blog of that name.

Today, I'm cheating and pulling a quote by our man Fred that he didn't bother to put up at his own blog, but rather through his posting privileges at Badger Blog Alliance. Today, Fred voiced his disgust at Nancy Pelosi, who stated that President Bush lacks the authority to invade Iran without Congressional approval. Here's Fred:
Who the heck does Nancy Pelosi think she is? Last time I looked the Commander in Chief controlled foriegn policy and the military if George Bush decides he wants to invade Iran who is Nancy Pelosi to say no?
Fred may want to brush up just a bit:
Article I, Section 8. The Congress shall have power to [. . .] declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water;

To raise and support armies, but no appropriation of money to that use shall be for a longer term than two years;

To provide and maintain a navy;

To make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces;
I hope that, should Fred manage to get elected to the Racine City Council, he reads those rules a little more closely than he reads his Constitution.
