While We Were All Watching Hillary Yesterday, Obama Did This Despicable Act

While everyone was enthralled by the Hillary Clinton performance before the Benghazi special committee, there was something happening in Washington D.C. that will have reverberations across the world.

 Just when you think President Barack Obama couldn’t surprise you anymore, well, Little Lord Fauntleroy, pulls another doozy. Once upon a time the primary title of the president was commander-in-chief, but it now appears it has been replaced by spoiled brat. And yes, I sincerely mean that based on the actions of Obama Thursday.

As reported by Fox News, “President Obama vetoed a sweeping $612 billion defense policy bill Wednesday in a rebuke to congressional Republicans, and insisted they send him a better version that doesn’t tie his hands on some of his top priorities.

In an unusual veto ceremony, Obama praised the bill for ensuring the military stays funded and making improvements on military retirement and cybersecurity. Yet he pointedly accused Republicans of resorting to “gimmicks” and prohibiting other changes needed to address modern security threats.

 “Unfortunately, it falls woefully short,” Obama said. “I’m going to be sending it back to Congress, and my message to them is very simple: Let’s do this right.”

The rare presidential veto marked the latest wrinkle in the ongoing fight between Obama and Republicans who control Congress over whether to increase federal spending — and how. Four years after Congress passed and Obama signed into law strict, across-the-board spending limits, both parties are eager to bust through the caps for defense spending. But Obama has insisted that spending on domestic programs be raised at the same time, setting off a budget clash with Republicans that has yet to be resolved.”
