Obama 2007: Exec Privilege "Subject To Abuse"

From CNN, via YouTube:

Obama In 2007: Executive Privilege Is "Subject To Abuse"

Back on March 26, 2007 candidate Obama told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he would respect the law and the separation of powers if he were elected President:

"I think the issue of executive power and executive privilege is one that is subject to abuse and in an Obama presidency what you will see will be a sufficient respect for law and the co-equal branches of government that I hope we don’t find ourselves in a situation in which we would have aides being subpoenaed for what I think everything acknowledges is some troublesome information out there."

But that was then, and this is now. Besides, Obama said the same kind of things about Presidential ‘signing statements’ and a myriad other things that he has since gone back on.

Vladimir Lenin once said: "Promises are like pie crust, made to be broken." And just like Lenin, Obama sees words as merely a means to power. They have no other significance.

    Not only is he a lying hypocrite, but he can’t even construct a coherent sentence without his teleprompter!
