Stamp Out Signing Statements!

This is ostensibly an article about Obama appointing and keeping "czars."  But its major importance is in the area of signing statements.  A beloved tactic of George W. Bush, they are a way a President can execute part of a law sent down by Congress and ignore the rest.  It is patently unconstitutional.  When he was a candidate, Obama said that he had taught constitutional law for ten years and knew it was wrong and he wouldn't do it.  But here he is doing it.  It should stop.
