THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR JOHN MCCAIN, we’d have a President who used “signing statements” to evade laws passed by Congress. And they were right! Obama says he’s not bound by Guantanamo, gun-control provisions. “After he signed the omnibus into law Friday, the White House released a concurrent signing statement saying Obama will object to portions of the legislation on constitutional grounds. Signing statements are highly controversial, and their legality is disputed.”
Well, mostly when there’s a Republican in the White House.
