Obama’s Latest Late Friday Sucker Punch

Barack Obama has a tendency to sign executive orders that do things that might stir controversy late on Friday night so people don’t really notice it. No one watches the weekend news shows, so the networks can run it once or twice and say they ‘covered’ it, and then move on to other things by Monday when people are paying attention again.

One example of this tactic was when he revoked Bush’s Mexico City policy and once again began funding abortions in other countries with American taxpayer dollars. This was a measure that a large majority of the country opposed…thus, the late Friday signing to avoid scrutiny. Naturally, that hacked off the Right.

Now, he’s again trying to avoid scrutiny, but this time he’s hacking off the Left. Remember this?


But, as with all promises made by Obama, there is an expiration date. For this particular promise, that expiration date is today (h/t Weekly Standard):

President Obama signed the $106 billion war-spending bill into law Friday, but not without taking a page from his predecessor and ignoring a few elements in legislation.

Obama included a five-paragraph signing statement with the bill, including a final paragraph that outlined his objections to at least four areas of the bill.

HOPE! CHANGE!

And loads of doublethink, too.

There’s my two cents.

I'm a gun-owning, Bible-thumping, bitter clinger conservative in the heartland. You can disagree with me if you want (you do, after all, have a right to be wrong)...just don't be rude or stupid and we'll get along just fine! :)
