A Quick Constitutional Tutorial for Senator McCain
The Commander in Chief responsibilities of the American President only materialize AFTER A WAR HAS BEEN DECLARED, and the only branch of government that can do such a thing is the legislative branch. This whole cockamamie notion of yours that a President can do pretty much whatever the hell that pleases him has zero Constitutional backing behind it (I can still remember vividly the look on George Will's face when you shamelessly and moronically uttered this to him) and, while, yeah, the power of the Presidency has certainly grown over time, it doesn't make it right, dude. It doesn't make it right.
