Then, Candidate Obama:
“You know, I taught Constitutional Law for ten years. I take the Constitution very seriously,” he said. “The biggest problems that we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all…
“And that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States of America.”
How soon they and he forget!
Now, King Obame 1st with ANOTHER threat to bypass Congress:
And predictably, the mindless drones of the left applauded obame both times, then and now. As usual, depending who is in the White House, the left will oppose such actions when a non-proggy is in the office and applaud worse actions when one of their own is in the office.
The latest tactic by the left is to bring up the NUMBER of Executive Orders that obame has issued. It is indeed less than other Presidents, but they don’t want to discuss the CONTENT of those orders since in most cases they violate the rights of the citizen (FDR EO9066 – internment of the Japanese Americans) or violate the Constitution as in obame’s own words that he won’t use EOs or signing statements and “not go through Congress at all”. Remember as a candidate, he originally emphasized the “checks and balances” of our government and how important it was to maintain it. He was going to reverse the damage that evil Bush was doing.
