Signing Off

Julian Ku highlights Obama's hypocrisy on signing statements:

While signing statements have no more legal effect than a President expressing his opinion about a bill, this is noteworthy for two reasons: 1) the sheer hypocrisy and patently obvious fearmongering, and 2) Obama said that he does think that signing statements grant the President legislative power. His continued use of them is more than just hypocritical given his expression of what they do. It shows how dangerously power-hungry he is.
