Great interview on TDR today with George Miller, the Chair of the House Democratic Policy Committee. He was surprisingly critical of the White House’s lack of consultation with Congress before ordering action in Libya.

“I don’t think there’s a lot of evidence that they sufficiently consulted the Congress,” said Miller on the show today. And when asked by Savannah whether the president had proper legal authority, Miller responded, “I’m one of those who believe when you’re not defending the shores of the United States, you have an obligation under the Constitution to come to the Congress and ask for permission, so no.”
