Obama in '08 on excessive executive branch power

President Obama invoked executive privilege on Wednesday to keep hidden certain documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal from Congress.

The President, over the course of his tenure in office, has issued at least 20 signing statements and countless executive orders to circumvent congress, an extraordinary abuse of executive branch power.

At the Saddleback forum, in 2008, then-Senator Obama criticized Supreme Court Chief Justice, John Roberts, for affording too much power to the executive branch and allowing it to encroach upon the other branches.

Par for the course.......
