    Finally Obama does something right.

    Wait...
    Wasn't GWB villified for using signing statements to justify selectively enforcing/executing the law?

    How is this different?

    Should Presidents just enforce the laws they like?

    I went to Target yesterday and there was a guy outside asking for signatures. Here is how it went down.

    Guy - "Help support California's largest cash crop".
    Me - "What is California's largest cash crop?".
    Guy - " It's not pineapples."
    Me - "Ok, what is it then?"
    Guy - "Marijuana" <he slightly braces for an attack>
    Me - "Sure I'll sign. I'm all for bringing a few billion dollars to the state economy."
    Guy - "Awesome."

    As they like? No. As reason dictates? Sure. Name the laws George Bush was vilified for and we'll see if he received unjust treatment.

    Subjective is determining that dogmatic application of the law's penalties will invariably result in its aim. Then again, everything is subjective, and the 'objective' is only the degree of realism within the subjective agent's perspective.

    Anyway, an executive power's ability to enforce the law is contingent on its power to do so. Even before Mexico decriminalized possession of small amounts of drugs, standard policy was still not to pursue casual users because they did not possess the means to do both that and combat the cartels. If resources apportioned to the pursuit of users of medical marijuana are re-directed to cracking down on more organized and systematic criminal usages, or on more serious crimes altogether, then the decision is justifiable, and 'objectively reasoned', as it were. Since the U.S. is in debt, no such conservation of resources merits condemnation.

    Now, about George Bush.
