This is a surprise?

The House just passed an amendment to, I think a military funding bill?, yesterday that would forbid any funds being spent on Libya, if not in compliance with the War Powers Act. Heard about it on Maddow last night. Bipartisan passage, no leadership support in either party. About 60% of Dems and 60% of Republicans supported passage. No idea on whether or not the Senate will pass the same language.
It might be wise for Obama to back down on Libya. It seems no one is really in the mood for this stuff anymore.
