I just heard a Liberal Fox News Contributor defending President Obama’s use of Executive Orders.
Even after presented with the Presidents own words Demonizing the use of Executive Orders prior to being Elected, the Contributor stuck to the line that the number of Executive Orders were less than previous Presidents. Not that the number particularly matters… it’s a symbolism over substance argument, but’s it’s all they have.
This has been the defense offered for the last several weeks… since the “I’ve got a Pen and a Phone…” comment by the President.
But what I found most interesting was a New Line seemingly tossed out for effect. Smells a bit like a trial balloon.
The Contributor said: “You know… President Reagan created the NSA with an Executive Order.”
Well, considering I’ve heard NSA stories from as early as the late 60’s that statement struck me as immediately false. It should be noted however that Martha MacCallum allowed it to go by unchallenged. Maybe she didn’t know, but this is what the Left does. They make up something and throw it out in an unrelated discussion knowing they will not be called on it due to time. And, when not called on it, those who don’t know accept it as truth.
The Progressives are aware that the NSA Domestic Spying is so poisonous that they need to figure out a way to pin it on someone else.
Who better than Reagan?
So, to clarify the record, President Truman (D-MO) created the National Security Agency. Here is the link from the NSA’s own site.
We are coming into election season and these types of History Revision will increase as the Left desperately tries to save what support they have remaining.
Someone please let Martha know. She’s going to have to be on her toes…
