...the eternal enemies of principles.
All non-axiomatic arguments must be approached with caution...they are mostly rhetorical devices to guide perception at a specific point in time, and not as a statement of principle for action across the spectrum of all outcomes.
Put another way, in the immortal words of Jack Sparrow:
"The only rules that really matter are these: What a man can do, and what a man can't do."
Recall our President's pre-election position on the war powers of the President.
Which was prior to his new determinations of national interest, it seems:
April 7 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama had the
constitutional authority to use military force in Libya without
congressional approval because he could “reasonably determine”
intervention was in the “national interest,” according to a
U.S. Justice Department memo.
