Issues concerning our Country and the rest of the World.

An interesting thought…?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s stint as unofficial envoy to Syria poses an interesting thought – does this set the precedent to undermine executive power in affairs of Foreign Policy? Or has there ever been a similar situation in which members of an alternate party undercut Presidential authority by means of Congressional delegation?

I can imagine a scenario where a lame duck President whose Foreign Policies have been utterly useless is rendered completely irrelevant by the brokering of some deal or diplomatic coup d’etat by members of Congress acting on their own whim and accord.

Another reason to not just blindly tow the line and support the leader’s of your preferred Party – Bush has done more to damage the Republican Party than any Liberal could have achieved, and more reason to support moderate, reasonable Conservatives (more on this in another post to come…)
