President Barack Obama, speaking to a crowd of House Democrats at a party retreat in Maryland, touted his executive order powers on Friday….
While saying he’s willing to work with Congress, he added, “I’m not going to wait, because there’s too much to do.”
But in an earlier time, when it was President George Bush the Younger, then-Senator Barack Obama (D, IL) was saying this:
The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the Executive Branch and not go through Congress at all, and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States of America.
He just lied the first time.
