Presidential Signing Statements Research Guide — Georgetown Law
When Democrats tried to create laws against their use? Not a single Republican cared enough to support the bill. If the problem is that Obama "broke the law" by using signing statements to circumvent the law, Republicans are going to have to try and explain away why they were in favor of this BEFORE Obama became president. They've already been in support of this:U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia disagreed with his fellow justices' disregard of a signing statement related to the Detainee Treatment Act, Pub. L. No. 109-148, §§ 1005-1006, 119 Stat. 2736 (2005). Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, 548 U.S. 557 (2006) (Scalia dissenting). In March 2009, President Obama issued a memo to the heads of executive departments and agencies in which he opined "In appropriately limited circumstances, [presidential signing statements] represent an exercise of the President's constitutional obligation to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and they promote a healthy dialogue between the executive branch and the Congress."
It's simple and Bush set the standard, the president can do what he feels is necessary within his constitutional power when interpreting the law. None of this was even questionable by Republicans before 2008. Now they're against it? Tough ****. Obama brought an American home and sent a few goat herders to be disappeared in Qatar. Win-win.Originally Posted by Detainee Treatment Act of 2005
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
