According to Bill, this is "lip service" to consulting with Congress, and Obama bombing the crap out of Libya before even SPEAKING to Congress amounts to pretty much exactly what "every Republican president has ever done."

You are engaging in naked Team Blue vs. Team Red cheerleading, Bill, and I think you're smart enough to know it.
The AUMF was passed 160 prior to the actual invasion. Yes it was before. Waaaaaaaaay before. Before the UN inspections in fact, which couldn't find any WMD. Not exactly quality consultation. Let's not rewrite history.
