Pawlenty Joins the Warmonger Crowd

Pawlenty apparently bought the line of BillyBoy Kristol--and Obozo, too!

"It is not wrong for Republicans to debate the timing of our military drawdown in Afghanistan," Pawlenty said. "What is wrong is for the Republican Party to shrink from the challenges of American leadership in the world."

"America already has one political party devoted to decline, retrenchment, and withdrawal," he added. "It does not need a second one."

He referred to conservatives who are inclined to restraint as "isolationists."

Good luck with that, Tim.

He wasn't done.

...former-Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty told the Council on Foreign Relations in New York today that the War Powers Act “does not apply” to the current U.S. military operation in Libya.

Yah, well, WPA is a bit controversial. But there's this silly Constitutional thing about Congress declaring war--not the President. Details, details....
