Obama Promised Not to Use Signing Statements, but Released One Last Night

In 2008, Barack Obama promised that he would not use signing statements, but last night he released one to accompany his signing of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013.

Here’s Obama’s pledge:

He said that signing statements are a presidential power grab, and made clear he believed it violated the Constitution.

Overnight, however, Obama released this signing statement, in an attempt to try to change the meaning of the defense bill Congress sent to him for his signature.

This is what America voted for – Liar-In-Chief and that’s what they got!
