Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), the former Chief Deputy Majority Whip (the highest appointed position in the House of Representatives), thinks Congress has no role to play in war and Bush only needed to check with his lawyers to take us into Iraq. I kid you not...
Matthews: ...why did the president ask for approval of Congress before he went to Iraq?
Cantor: Well, you know, I certainly think that his counsel gave him guidance as to why he needed to do that, but at the end of the day the Constitution gives the commander and chief the right to send our troops into battle.
Matthews was flabbergasted. This, my friends, is---the Republic Party.
