Not that anyone should ever take a politician at his word, but I found this statement rich in irony. From Senator Obama:
“I would call my attorney general in and review every single executive order issued by George Bush and overturn those laws or executive decisions that I feel violate the constitution,” said Obama.
New boss...same as the old boss?
Executive orders may be one thing, but last I checked, I do not recall learning that it is the role of the Executive Branch to overturn laws the President deems to be unconstitutional. I guess anything's possible this day and age.
And no disrespect to Obsidian Wings, but that is not a statement that should put a smile on anyone's face. It's a politician's pandering at its worst.
Another reason why I will never vote for the man.
For what it's worth, let's just say I have some disagreement's with the Bush Administration's constitutional positions. Rather than explain in detail, this paper by The Cato Institute should suffice.
