Hey, how about those checks and balances?

Over the weekend, the most pro-choice President in history, made a deal with a pro-life Democrat, that he would sign an executive order maintaining the status quo on restricting funding for abortions. Well, it's safe to say that our pro-life Democrat is pro-life no more. The Susan B Anthony list announced that our wheeler-dealer is losing his "Defender of Life" Award. (He didn't get it yet, so he doesn't have to mail it back.) And as of last night, proponents of the health care legislation had the votes they needed.

Now, here's the catch. The President doesn't make law; Congress does. And where the executive order conflicts with the law, the law prevails. We heard a lot about this abuse of power in the last major election. I don't know about you, but I found this guy very convincing.

This ain't over yet, kids.

He still doesn't believe in signing statements. He fully expects his signing statement to fail in court and then he will have everything he asked for.
