    been completely disregarded.   Bush should have been told that the Congress would vote to go to war if and when there was cause to declare war.

    I'm opposed to all the "authorizations of force."  Either we have reason to Declare War or we don't.   We never had it with Iraq and we never should have provided "authorization."
