WHAT IS THIS “LAW” YOU SPEAK OF, EARTHLING?….Michelle Boardman, a deputy assistant attorney general, had this to say to Congress yesterday: “It is often not at all the situation that the president doesn’t intend to enact the bill.” Dan Drezner comments:
Getting rid of the double negative, and this translates into, “the president often intends to enact the bill.” Not always, but often. Which is great, but I always thought that when Congress passes a law [and the president signs it] ? no matter how stupid that law might be ? the president is always supposed to implement it.
Silly boy. Laws are for kids. The grownups are in charge now, remember?
