Stepping up a simmering constitutional conflict, House Speaker John A. Boehner warned President Obama on Tuesday that unless he gets authorization from Congress for his military deployment in Libya, he will be in violation of the War Powers Resolution.

Re War powers

Much ado about nothing. The US Constitution gives equal powers to three branches of government. Congress has no EFFECTIVE enforcement mechanism to tell Obama what to do. If Congress disagrees, then they can convene another impeachment circus ala Monica Blewclinsky . . . Boehner is just trying to appease the base.
