When He’s Lost The New York Times …

The NYT has an op-ed piece by Bruce Ackerman that opens with these words:

PRESIDENT OBAMA’s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris.

Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. In contrast, the Obama administration has not even published a legal opinion attempting to justify the president’s assertion of unilateral war-making authority. This is because no serious opinion can be written.

Read the whole thing.

  1. I’m always disappointed when the extremely rare NYT op-ed piece that is critical of Obama doesn’t allow comments. And even more rare is that this one is quite bluntly negative and doesn’t offer any apoligies. Wow! There are few things more entertaining than reading the plaintive and always verbose bleatings of the NY elite liberal intellectual defending this administration. Comments on this piece would have been so entertaining!

  2. As I’ve said elsewhere, the NYT is in the bag for Hillary, even if it means taking a dump on The One every so often
