As a candidate in 2008, Barack Obama promised that if he was elected president he would not issue obscure declarations known as signing statements that thwart the intent of laws passed by Congress. But as the president now seeking reelection in 2012, on at least 20 occasions Obama has embraced the same tactic he criticized George W. Bush for using, raising allegations of double-dealing in Congress and questions of constitutionality from the American Bar Association. Obama Embraces Signing Statements After Knocking Bush for Using Them - The Daily Beast BUT why would anyone be surprised at the HYPOCRITE-IN-CHIEF!!! HYPOCRISY EXAMPLES! This is the same hypocrite that piously preaches to the rest of us to be our"brothers' keeper" YET HIS BROTHER LIVES IN A $12/year HUT! THAT severely admonishes those "evil millionaires and billionaires" for using Tax loopholes YET Obama has written off against HIS tax payments over $300,000 in operating loss carryforwards... smart eh... BUT hypocritically nevertheless.. "Do as I say but not as I DO"!!! This is the SAME hypocrite that criticized our troops for.. "Air-raiding villages and killing civilians" AND THEN he salutes them!!! WHAT A f...ing hypocrite!
