As you are probably aware, one of the justifications the White House is using to explain it’s failure to consult Congress before releasing five Taliban murderers for an American army deserter is that Obama didn’t think the law requiring him to talk to Capitol Hill was constitutional.
His misgivings were expressed in a signing statement. The very kind of signing statement the wicked George W. Bush used to issue and that the Knight in Shining Armor, Sir Candidate Barack Obama, PROMISED NOT TO ISSUE.
Really, it’s dizzying. Is there any necessary relationship at all between what this man and his advisors say and the truth? The truth and any given statement by Obama seem to glide along on separate paths that may or may not by happenstance intersect.
Do you think I like this? Do you think I like not being able to trust my president, just because I disagree with his policies and think he’s often inept? I don’t like it at all.
