Last month, when President Obama used a signing statement to evade accountability concerning White House negotiations with the IMF, I posted about it at Huffington Post. Checking out the comment stream there will show the brickbats that are earned when a leftist complains about a corporate centrist President – as well as the attaboys from detestable right-wing douchebags.
The funny thing is, today, the House of Representatives went an voted 429-2 to do exactly what I did in print: call bullshit on the signing statement, and on the White House’s far-too-comfy relationship with the Wall Street pigs who doubled all of us down on mortgages they knew were bad.
I did a longer piece at HuffPo today in response. Thanks, Congress.
