Obama’s Broken Promise on Signing Statements

Update: Look at the VC comments on this. It’s unbelievable. Obama supporters argue that he isn’t breaking his promise, because they say he only promised not to thwart the will of Congress with signing statements!

Was I unfair in calling Barack Obama “hypocritical” in issuing his (otherwise sensible and constitutional) signing statements last week? Hypocrisy is a strong charge. On the other hand, Obama explicitly denounced the “theory of George Bush that he can make laws as he is going along” by using signing statements and then flatly promised not to use any such statements when in office. See for yourself.
