Tweet of the Day: Flashback of Obama on GWB’s abuse of executive privilege

Man, talk about your facepalms! As I wrote yesterday, President Obama made a small blunder in a speech, which the White House foolishly focused attention on by altering the official transcript. I say “foolishly” because in the age of the internet, nothing disappears forever. There is always a digital paper trail that leads back to your words.

A tweet that is going viral (h/t Twitchy) is also accompanied by a YouTube video, confirming a statement Obama made about executive limits in March 2008. Like so much else in his presidency, the criticism was accompanied by a promise of how much better he would do if elected, which he has since shattered.
