Obama's Violation of War Powers Act?

Text sent to my Vermont US Senators Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy, and to Congressman Peter Welch:

If Obama has violated the War Powers Act, I ask that you act to remove Barack Obama from office. I have posted a video and more information on the internet:

Please review, and/or have a staff member, review, and please give me feedback on the content of the post and links. Thank you, Steven G. Erickson, PO Box Eight Seventy Four, Brattleboro, VT 05302

President Obama said the US would stay in Libya for days. Two months later, however, the War Powers Act says America needs to go to war or get out of North Africa. Can Obama circumvent the Constitution or is the Commander in Chief breaking the own laws he promises to uphold on the campaign trail? RT's Lauren Lyster investigates.

Text with War Powers Resolution (Source Wikipedia):
"War Powers Act" redirects here. For other uses, see War Powers Act of 1941.

The War Powers Resolution of 1973 (50 U.S.C. 1541-1548)[1] is a federal law intended to check the power of the President in committing the United States to an armed conflict without the consent of Congress. The resolution was adopted in the form of a United States Congress joint resolution; this provides that the President can send U.S. armed forces into action abroad only by authorization of Congress or in case of "a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces."

The War Powers Resolution requires the President to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30 day withdrawal period, without an authorization of the use of military force or a declaration of war. The resolution was passed by two-thirds of Congress, overriding a presidential veto.

Despite the apparent non-ambiguity of its language, the War Powers Resolution has been regularly ignored by presidents of both parties,[2][3]some even declaring their belief that the act is unconstitutional.[4][5]
