Obama: "I'll overturn laws"
“I would call my attorney general in and review every single executive order issued by George Bush and overturn those laws or executive decisions that I feel violate the constitution,” said Obama
I applaud the sentiment, but I'm appalled by the ignorance:
I mean, the President can't overturn laws.
Bush thought so, but shouldn't a lecturer in Constitutional law know -- and speak -- differently? Especially when the lecturer graduated from Harvard Law, took the oath as a Senator, and is famous for his eloquence and mastery of the well-chosen word?
Or does Obama really believe, with Bush, that the President can overturn laws?
Cue another round of W.O.R.M.!
