    “And that is how power accrues to the president.”

    EO's, signing statements, the party continues ....


    Obama circumvents laws with 'signing statements,' a tool he promised to use lightly. - The Washington Post

    ....

    Obama’s use of the practice has “been indistinguishable from Bush. The volume is a little less,” said Bruce Fein, who was a member of the ABA panel. “His conception of executive power is equally as grandiose as Bush.”

    And according to a January 2012 report by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service: “While the frequency with which the Obama Administration has asserted constitutional objections to enacted statutory provisions represents a departure from previous administrations, the types of objections within the signing statements that the President has issued have generally mirrored those of previous administrations.”

    But, as with everything else in Washington, reaction generally takes a party line.

    “When Bush was issuing signing statements, the Republicans didn’t care. When Obama was doing it, Democrats didn’t care,” Fein said. “And that is how power accrues to the president.”

    Where is the bottom of this slippery slope?

    Even Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly, who voted for an immigration overhaul bill that was passed by the Senate last year but stalled in the House, said only Congress has the ability to change immigration laws.

    "I am as frustrated as anyone that Congress is not doing its job, but the president shouldn't make such significant policy changes on his own," Donnelly said.

    I hope they have better luck with that than sueing him for being an illegal.

    Imagine the cries of sorrow from the Left, once we have a Republican back in the White House, and he starts operating on the precedents set by Glorious Organizer......

    And most intelligent people will consider calling the governor an idiot for considering suing the president over the immigration plan.
