I was laughing out loud listening to this NPR interview with Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN).
Sen. Corker is oh so concerned about the fact that the Obama Administration is undertaking covert actions in “foreign policy” and, specifically, Syria, Pakistan, and Yemen. Sen. Corker whines that the Senate has been marginalized in foreign policy (really, security) issues.
The Obama Administration is, of course, using the exact same powers granted to the Bush Administration by the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force.
Shorter Sen. Corker (in Southern drawl): “When we eagerly granted the President unprecedented powers to undertake covert foreign actions without oversight, we didn’t realize the scary Black guy with a Muslim-ey sounding name would get to use it, too!”
