"The biggest problems that we're 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 when I'm president of the United States." --

Sen. Barack Obama, March 31, 2008

How things change when they get into the Oval Office. I guess you could say their positions "evolve"....

I think BHO perhaps underestimated the sheer virulence that would be directed toward him and the Congressional Stone Wall that was built up to oppose any of his initiatives. He has had to adapt. And he has.

Obama owned both houses of Congress in his first two years and basically reversed himself on a slew of things he said he wouldn't do if elected President. "Virulence" had nothing to do with it. What DID make a difference was that he was sitting in the big chair and had access to all the facts and all the variables.

Ron Paul said:

"The concentration of power in the office of the President is yet one more negative consequence of our interventionist foreign policy.

A foreign policy based on interventionism requires a strong and energetic executive, unfettered by Constitutional niceties such as waiting for Congress to pass laws or declare war.

So it simply was natural, as America abandoned the traditional foreign policy of non-interventionism, for Presidents to act “without waiting for Congress.” After all, the President is “commander-in-chief” and he needs to protect “national security,” they argued.

Once it became accepted practice for the President to disregard Congress in foreign affairs, it was only a matter of time before Presidents would begin usurping Congressional authority in domestic matters."

Obama flip flopped.
