(Video) Utah congressman says Obama is "terribly arrogant" with land grab

Grand Staircase-Escalante
National Monument.
If you're a Democratic president, you grand land. It's what you do. Just as Bill Clinton did in 1996 with the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

At least Clinton made his move, which was a sneaky one, before an election. Coward Barack Obama, who has been planning his land snatch for over a year, waited until he was a lame duck.

Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz, a Republican, blasted Obama use of an executive order to make Bears Ears in Utah and Gold Butte in Nevada national monuments.

Chaffez explains that the Antiquities Act, which gives the president the power do declare such national monuments, was designed for the creation of small areas, not tracts of land larger than the entire state of Delaware.

There is not a single person that is an elected official that represents that's in favor [of this move]," Chaffetz tells Fox News, "but the president did it anyway.

Chaffetz says Obama is "terribly arrogant."

He sure is.
