President Obama Differs from Senator Obama

President Obama believes the Unitary Executive has the power to unilaterally order a military strike on Syria in retribution for use of chemical weapons on civilians,  Senator Obama stated the President needed Congressional authorization for war.  However, in a magnanimous display Obama promised to ask Congress for authorization to attack Syria.

Given President-elect Obama kept his mouth shut when Israel used cluster munitions, white phosphorous and DIME bombs on its neighbors, his outrage on the Syrian attacks looks hollow and one sided.
