The House of Representatives has decisively voted down a resolution that would have formally authorized President Obama’s war in Libya (not that he asked). A good 70 Democrats voted against the president while only eight Republicans voted with him. By contrast, just six House Republicans voted against authorizing President Bush to wage war on Iraq.
House Democrats also used Bushian arguments in defense of Obama. Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) said opponents of the resolution were “siding with Qadhafi.” House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said a vote against the resolution would show the world that “America does not keep faith with its allies.” Meanwhile, Republicans sounded antiwar themes. “The president continues to involve the U.S. military in this illegal conflict,” said Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AK).
A vote on war funding will soon follow.
UPDATE: The House rejected a bill that would have cut off funding for the war.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
