Two quotes, actually (hat tip to Mike's America):
The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. — Senator Barack Obama, December 20 2007
America has an important strategic interest in preventing Qaddafi from overrunning those who oppose him. A massacre would have driven thousands of additional refugees across Libya’s borders, putting enormous strains on the peaceful –- yet fragile -– transitions in Egypt and Tunisia. — President Barack Obama, March 28, 2011
The Obama Doctrine trumping the United States Constitution?
