ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl asked OBama:
“When you were running for president, you said, ‘The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.’
So my question to you, has Congress’ inability to do anything significant given you a green light to push the limits of executive power, even a duty to do so?
Or put another way, does it bother you more to be accused of being an imperial president pushing those limits or to be accused of being a do-nothing president who couldn’t get anything done because he faced dysfunctional Congress?”
Karl called the President out for slamming George W. Bush when he was campaigning for the presidency. In case you missed it, Obama once accused Bush of abusing the powers of the executive branch and bypassing Congress.
BOOM! THANK YOU, JONATHAN KARL FOR CALLING OBAMA ON HIS RAMPANT HYPOCRISY! ABC NEWS, GIVE THAT MAN A RAISE.
