MSNBC attacks Obama over signing statement flip-flop

MSNBC, Obama'a favorite network, upbraided the president over his flip-flop on signing statements. When he signed the Defense Authorization Bill earlier this week, Obama added a signing statement that he didn't agree with the provision that blocks him from transferring War on Terror detainees out of Afghan prisons and Guantanamo Bay.

Which likely means that our imperious president will ignore that part of the bill.

Swarmy Chuck Todd blows the whistle on Obama here--and there's a 2008 campaign clip too that shows Obama condemning his predecessor's use of signing statements.
