Congress to Vote on 'Toothless' War Powers Resolution Today

Politics can be very symbolic and this is especially true for Democrats in an election year. Democrats love to do things that show just how compassionate they are, how much they love diversity, how they care for their lowly constituents -- in short, how much better human beings they are than Republicans.
That they are power hungry, cynical, self-absorbed radicals somehow never makes it into their campaign ads.
No matter. When it comes time to show the American people how much they love "peace," they're liable to whip up a non-binding, toothless resolution that scolds the Republican president (they'd never pass one against a Democratic president) for some action or another that legally falls within the president's authority as commander in chief, but sounds great to oppose on TV.
I give you the latest iteration of the "war powers" resolution.
Fox News:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced plans for the House to vote Thursday on a War Powers Resolution that aims to limit President Trump’s military action toward Iran, saying Democrats have “serious, urgent concerns about the administration’s decision to engage in hostilities against Iran and about its lack of strategy moving forward.”
The Democrat-authored resolution would reassert congressional authority and rebuke Trump’s decision to take out Iran’s top general without their consent. Pelosi said the resolution will go to the House Rules Committee on Wednesday and will be brought to the floor for a vote Thursday.
"Reassert congressional authority" to do what? Stamp their little feet and throw a tantrum? President Obama authorized an incursion into another country, violating its sovereignty, in order to kill Osama bin Laden — and Democrats celebrated. Trump sends a couple of drones into Iraq, a nominal ally, to take out a man who arguably killed more Americans than bin Laden and Democrats have a cow.
