Obama has the power and does not need Congressional Approval
The War Powers Act of 1973 gives him the authority to strike Syria without the need for Congressional Approval.

However, Obama does not have the backbone to go against the Muslin Brotherhood nor the political capitol to sustain his claim against Assad. Thus he sent it to Congress so he can have a plausible excuse to strike.

If he attacked Syria with Congressional support, it would only confirm to the rest of the world that he is a member of the MB, much like the WND and Boo Brother (Axe Jones) says he is (Not that I find either one of them very creditable). Americans will simply be told a lie by the MSM so we can just go about our daily lives.

Personally I do not believe Assad used chemical weapons, I think it was the rebels. The more information I see the more I believe it to be correct.

Maybe the War Powers Act of 1973 is unconstitutional?

There is debate about that yes, however, it is law. Nixon even vetoed the Bill but was overruled by Congress. Thus he has the ability until the Law is challenged.

Both Reagan and Clinton used the War Powers Act to their own benefit and exceeded its powers. Both without a word from Congress.
