All of a sudden Liberals are worried about Executive Powers that were no big deal under President-Pen-and-a-Phone Obama. Check out this video that shines a spotlight on their hypocrisy…
From the video’s description:
An Obama supporter explains how after you get to a certain age, such as whatever age you turn in 2016, you naturally become concerned with executive overreach. Subscribe to the channel for more helpful explainers!
Recently, many left-leaning people have become (randomly) concerned about reigning in executive power, a mass event not seen since the beginning years of the Bush presidency. This concern manifests itself in suddenly questioning the ability of the president to unilaterally order military action, including drone strikes, air strikes, special forces, etc. It also comes across as questioning whether just maybe executive actions aren’t the best way to govern with impunity, or that lists like the No-Fly List and programs like the NSA’s PRISM could potentially be bad when leaders who aren’t Barack Obama are President.
Watch this video by ‘We the Internet‘:
Obama is now lecturing Trump on not abusing Executive Orders.
Can you believe the gall of this guy?
He said, ‘What I worry about in our politics is people getting impatient with the slowness of democracy.’
After all those times he said that he ‘won’t wait’, he’d act on his own and the famous ‘I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone’?
There’s even a government website that taunts Congress by enumerating Obama’s Executive Actions called ‘We Can’t Wait’.
Ok, Obama, here’s a reminder:
Well, it’s a good thing that Liberals are learning about government overreach.
Welcome to the club.
A few more weeks and many Liberals can fulfill a (slightly reworded) quote by Irving Kristol:
A conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality.
