    "A day before Obama signed executive orders closing Guantanamo Bay and banning torture, the White House's top lawyer privately indicated to Congress that the new president reserved the right to ignore his own (and any other president's) executive orders. In a closed-door appearance before the Senate intelligence committee, White House counsel Gregory Craig was asked whether the president was required by law to follow executive orders...

    ...Craig answered that the administration did not believe that he was."

    Well isn't this special ! Obama gets to issue a bunch of executive orders to make himself publicly appear to be so moral, so righteous, so just...

    ...but privately they don't really mean a thing because he puts himself above following them.

    Is this more of that "Change" we heard about?
