Did I miss a recent constitutional amendment?

When did the Legislative Branch take over the Executive Branch’s State Department?
Senators Pressure Iraq As Gunbattle Rages

By Vanessa Arrington Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- As a gunbattle raged south of Baghdad Saturday, two key U.S. senators told Iraqi leaders that American patience was growing thin and they needed to urgently overcome their stalemate and form a national unity government… [Ed. – Interestingly, Arrington provides no direct quote about American patience “growing thin”]

"I come away with the impression that the Iraqi leaders understand the sense of urgency we have conveyed to them. We all know the polls show declining support among the American people," McCain said at a news conference. "So I am guardedly optimistic that this will happen within weeks." [Ed. – Senator, those polls are irrelevant. The poll in November is the only one that matters, a concept you still haven’t grasped, you ‘maverick’ you]

Wisconsin Democrat and war opponent Sen. Russell Feingold joined McCain in pressing for the quick formation of a government, but he also declared his concern that the continued presence of American forces was prolonging the conflict... [Ed. - Naturally, the good senator provided no rationale for his position, but it makes for a great sound bite]

Good point. Those guys cannot take care of the business they are supposed to, let alone getting involved with foreign policy.
