Barack Obama (who campaigned against signing statements) issues signing statement. Again.

Of course Barack Obama did.

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won’t enforce it.

Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice.

Like he does.  :sigh: Some people simply cannot accept it that there can be other people out there who can and will tell them what to do. Yes, I’m sure that the USA would be more fun for the President if he was actually its king. But we’re not a monarchy, and President Obama isn’t a monarch. He should learn to accept that.

At the very least, he should apologize for being so rude about signing statements when he was a Senator.  Harder than it looks once you’re in charge, eh, Barry?

Barack Obama cooking the Census books over #Obamacare.

There are a lot of people in the health care pundit business who are screaming about this piece of news right now: “The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said.” Basically, the questions have been changed in a fashion that supposedly will make the census data collected more accurate, but will almost certainly bring in a result where the percentage of uninsured will be ‘officially’ deemed to be lower.  As the New York Times (rather glumly*) had ‘officials’ put it: “it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument.”

Funny how that works. (more…)

Quote of the Day, It Really IS Getting That Bad For @BarackObama edition.

Glenn Reynolds notes that Barack Obama isn’t just losing the game; he’s losing the spread.

If he were a Republican, the press would be screaming for impeachment. And he’s acting badly enough that, even though he’s a black Democrat, they’re beginning to take some small notice.

Mind you, in 2015 the White House is going to look back at these days and feel a little bit of nostalgia.  It’s going to seem so idyllic in comparison…

An open invitation to the American news media.

You know how the White House completely messed up its Equal Pay for Women message today, thanks to a lack of thought and a whole lot of hypocrisy? Remember how they ran for cover? Well, here’s the question, and you don’t have to say it aloud: did you enjoy it?

Barack Obama torpedoes changes to NSA program.

Ostensibly, he’s doing something completely different: “The Obama administration is preparing to unveil a legislative proposal for a far-reaching overhaul of the National Security Agency’s once-secret bulk phone records program in a way that — if approved by Congress — would end the aspect that has most alarmed privacy advocates since its existence was leaked last year, according to senior administration officials.”

“If.”

I blame Barack Obama for Bill de Blasio’s constant lateness.

Said tardiness mentioned here: “In his short tenure in office Bill de Blasio has earned a new title, “Johnny come lately,” for his frequent tardiness at public events.”  Anyway: no, really, I do Barack Obama, and I’m not being facetious about it.  One of the first things we learned about the current Presidential administration is that when Barack Obama says that he’ll be speaking at, say, 1 PM, he actually means that he’ll start speaking at any number of points between about 1:15 and 1:40 or so.  It’s gotten to the point it worries me when Barack Obama starts on time: it invariably means that whatever has happened is not actually good news.

So I figure that Bill de Blasio has decided that if Barack Obama can get away with being rude to everybody, so can he.  This will probably end up being one of the poor career choices that Bill de Blasio will make as Mayor: the man is showing real skill at making enemies where he doesn’t have to.

Tweet of the Day, This Is Not QUITE Correct Edition.

It is much more accurate to say that Barack Obama will be trying to use the Gadsden Flag to sell Obamacare. I say this largely because Barack Obama is terrible at selling things; it’s about time that more of us said that aloud.

The Obama administration wishes to wreck your quiet enjoyment of March Madness.

This is not really about basketball, of course..

As hoop heads across the country prepare for the Big Dance, President Barack Obama’s administration is banking on a new March Madness-focused campaign to help boost Obamacare enrollment.

To coincide with the start of NCAA basketball tournament, a White House official says the administration is launching an all-encompassing push around the annual basketball bonanza that will feature athletes, coaches, and others, in hopes of spurring more Americans to sign up for health care before the March 31 deadline.

Actually, Barack Obama is already poisonous to Democrats. Radioactive, too. Possibly even corrosive.

This statement, I admit, raised my eyebrow: “One Democratic lawmaker, who asked not to be identified, said Mr. Obama was becoming “poisonous” to the party’s candidates.”
