Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Helen, I agree with every one of your points.  What I'm getting that is: Congress is now not just rolling over on policy but allowing the executive to chip away at its prerogatives.  If it won't stand up to him on THAT then its very relevance is open to question.  I'd have thought members would fight for it tooth and nail, but maybe I'm wrong.  It's hard to believe though.
