    Obama promised as a candidate he would not go around Congress with Presidential signing statements. He has violated that pledge repeatedly. Any care to defend him?

    I guess Romney isn't the only presidential candidate with an Etch-A-Sketch!

    Even Lincoln changed his mind to fit the need.

    So you are fine with Obama lying to get elected? You realize he has signed several hundred executive orders?

    Lying or trying? Hard to decide. All politicans state their intended purposes while in office and I believe that Onama has tried to change things, but, there is much resistance to Obama

    If you say you are going to mow the lawn and then change your mind or don't do it, are you lying?

    He lied, how many has he told? Just go back to 2008 and read again all the things he was supposedly against that he is now for and all the things he was gonna do that he never did.

    I can only surmise theat he was woefully unaware of, and unprepared for, just what it means to be President...

    executive orders aren't signing statements, which is what obama pledged not to use to do an end run around congress.

    of course, he's used signing statements a number of times, too.

    i can imagine that it was quite a shock and an over whelming surge of people in your face telling you what to do and begging for something.
