President Obama used an Article 2 signing statement to deem unconstitutional a measure HE had signed into law contained in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The law stated that he must advise Congress within 30 days about any plans to transfer detainees from GITMO. Obama basically stated that this was “unconstitutional” and that his unilateral action fell within his purview. Once again Obama used selective discretion as to what law he feels he must adhere to — in this case it has severe ramifications for our national security.I'm old enough to remember when signing statements were considered the closest thing the Executive Branch had to a holy sacrament. If you're old enough to ride a bicycle, so do you.
To hear Obama state that “no American should be left behind” — has he forgotten about Benghazi and Marine SGT Tahmooressi? How about leaving behind American veterans to die?A question: Ought we pay any attention to Allen West anymore? I can never decide. He's being Fox News groomed for another run at something, so we likely will be seeing more of him either way, but when it comes to "things Allen West says" you could really just substitute in the banging of an off-kilter washing machine, it wouldn't make much difference. On the other hand, he really is a useful resource for finding out whatever the stupidest people in America are thinking.
Ladies and gentlemen, I submit that Barack Hussein Obama’s unilateral negotiations with terrorists and the ensuing release of their key leadership without consult — mandated by law — with the U.S. Congress represents high crimes and misdemeanors, an impeachable offense.
