Even the liberal establishment Beltway info hub The Hill has to admit that most people (in this case, polled voters) see through King Obama's Dirty-Dick-Nixonian claim of executive privilege to shield himself and the White House from the release of damaging Fast and Furious files.
The Emperor has no clothes...
(The Hill) A clear majority of likely voters believes President Obama has exercised his executive power inappropriately — particularly in blocking the release of documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious, according to a new poll for The Hill.
Obama last week invoked executive privilege to stop certain Justice Department documents relating to the botched “gun-walking” operation from being disclosed to the House Oversight and Government Reform committee.
Sixty-one percent of independents said they disapproved of the president’s actions, and just 25 percent approved. Among Republicans, opposition to the president’s use of executive privilege was more entrenched at 78 percent.
Even 28 percent of Democrats, and 30 percent of self-identified liberals disapproved of Obama’s position.
I generally hate polls but this is damning news for a man who firmly believes he is above both the law and the Constitution.
