Did Obama Violate the Logan Act During His Iraq Visit?

My latest at FSM:

Nothing in Article One, which covers the duties of Congress (both House and Senate), says anything about senators engaging foreign policy unbidden by the president - even those running for president. And somehow I doubt President Bush called him up and asked him to take over Condoleezza Rice's job for a day.

But my plebian education may be impeding my interpretation of both Obama's denial and the Constitution. See, I didn't go to Columbia or Harvard - like Sarah Palin, I graduated from a state university, so I may not be educated enough to figure it out. I do still have all my teeth, however, so that's one thing going for me.

Pam - I'm with you on this. The MSM should be making this a front page story. But the sad fact is that Obama asked for what they want - troop withdrawal in such a way that they can ALL take credit for it.

So while some may pay it lip service, it will never get the focus it should.

That said - I don't think the country is ready to have a presidential candidate indicted on charges related to The Logan Act. It would create such chaos and upheaval - much as I'd like to see it happen I don't believe it's the right thing for us, at least for now.

I would like to see it get more media coverage; but then I'd like to look like Heidi Klum.

What about getting indicted for embezzlement and bribery? How many illegal things do we have to overlook before the Democrats are arrested?

Barry, Kerry, and Dodd especially.

When ARE the chickens coming home to roost? John Kerry meeting with the North Vietnamese in Paris when he was still a serving Naval officer? Nancy Pelosi's excellent adventure in Syria? Now this. They keep doing it because they keep on getting away with it!

They need to have their leashes snapped on and shortened to legal levels!

The double standard is disturbing enough, but when one looks at the magnitude of the corruption (and sometimes, actual treason and sedition) among Democrat leaders, it's staggering that so many Americans willingly turn a blind eye in the interest of partisan politics.
