    David Leopold: Obama Legitimizes Legitimacy, Wreaking Havoc on the GOP


    They don't really want to limit executive priviliege, they simply want to limit the man that's in the White House now, not any future Republican presidents, lest they have to reverse course again, lol. Obama has stuck it to the again.

    What does Barack Obama's end run on the Dream Act have to do with "executive priviliege" which Barry just invoked to try and stonewall the investigation into Fast & Furious?

    Obama hasn't "stuck it to" anyone really...unless you count the American people who would like to know who were the idiots behind Fast & Furious. So much for the "most transparent government ever"...huh, Flaylo? Obama "stuck it to" THAT concept!!!

    Let them limit executive privilege to hurt Obama. I doubt this is much more than bluster because they know full well how far executive privilege was abused under GWB. GWB and company laughed at congress when they tried to get answers for 911 and the invasion of Iraq. Installing a new law now will not help them with fast and furious, but it will hurt whoever is our next president, and whoever is president in 2016. Obama only has 4 more years.

    I think it is great the way Obama has trolled the GOP into either trying to give him a black eye with fast and furious and limiting executive power and making things more transparent, or else fuelling him to yell at them for dropping the matter or stonewalling efforts the dems will put forth to make the presidency more transparent. This is the first time I have seen him play a really nice political trap to force one of his promises. The republicans are in a lose lose situation with presidential transparency and they can either try to shoot Obama down by forcing presidential transparency, or they have to let obama go on fast and furious because they cannot hit him without limiting executive privilege.

    You know, the more this fight goes on the more I am actually liking Obama. I was not fond of him a year ago, but he has come out hard for gay rights, he has settled a lot of our foreign wars, he has turned our downward economy around, he has kept gas prices low, he has supported immigrants who do the right thing, and he has started to attack tax breas for the rich. I have to say at this point Obama goes on my list as an actual good president despite the fact he was not the savior he said he would be he certainly has done better for the US than most presidents I have seen. He is an extremely smart manipulator who has stopped playing into the republican fight, and started to manipulate them using their own aggression into no win situations.Yeah, 4 more years of this guy might be the thing america actually needs.
