New Rule: Funding a war is approving a war

This goes for both parties. If you fund a war, you are approving it. There is nothing in the Constitution that says Congress has to make formal declarations of war; it just says Congress has that power. It doesn’t say how. I don’t see how you can fund it if you don’t approve of it.

Of course, this is all political stunt time so that people who invoke the Constitution every time a Democrat does something can scream about the illegal muslim socialist president. But, for all their criticism, Democrats made no serious attempt to defund the war in Iraq.

Our media overlords could solve this problem by simply not being tricked by this Byzantine, nonsensical distinction. A vote for funding is a vote to support what the President is doing. Period.
