Presidential Authority

A July 18, 2007, a Washington Post/AP Poll reports that “more than six in 10 Americans – 62 percent – said Congress should have the final say on when to pull out U.S. forces [from Iraq].”

Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution reads, “The President shall be commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states, when called into the actual service of the United States…”

This strongly suggests either 62 percent of Americans are ignorant of what the U.S. Constitution says or they or they want the Constitution rewritten.

I suspect the former to be truer.
