Captain Ed jumps the shark...


It used to be that Captain Ed could be relied upon for accurate, if partisan, analysis of politics and political news.  Though I did not always agree with him, I respected his opinion and ability to express it. 

Unfortunately, while I still admire his ability to express his opinion, I no longer have confidence in his ability to analyze a situation and come to the correct answer without the guidance of a partisan weathervane.  Here's why:
Nowhere in that resolution does it restrict the Bush administration from conducting its war operations within the US, and contrary to what Russ Feingold and Tom Daschle would have Americans think, laws do not enable government power but restrict them. That which is not explicitly forbidden is therefore assumed to be legal, and not the other way around, as a moment's thought will clearly show.
This flatly contradicts the enumerated powers doctrine.  Our constitution authorizes a limited federal government to take certain specified actions.  While a case could be made for State governments operating in that fashion, the Federal government is explicitly limited by the Constitution and doubly so by the 9th and 10th Amendments.

Sigh.
