Obama: "The President Does Not Have Power Under the Constitution to Unilaterally Authorize a Military Attack"

Once again, candidate Obama sounds nothing like President Obama. Once again, we've been had. In 2007, candidate Barack Obama told the Boston Globe:

“The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. In instances of self-defense, the president would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the legislative branch.”
-- Barack Obama, 2007
