The Rat @ The Rat’s Right:


“Lost in last week’s news cycle,” due to wall-to-wall coverage of the Democratic Convention, of course, (translation: conveniently buried by the liberal media), was the announcement by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) that it had determined the Regime circumvented federal law by waiving welfare work requirements.

As to expected, CBS, ABC and CNN failed to mention this “minor story.”

This is where I always throw in the “Imagine, if you will, George Bush or Dick Cheney” part – this time, Bush or Cheney being determined by the GAO (or MSNBC, for that matter) to have circumvented federal law. In your wildest dreams, can you also imagine the liberal media not jumping all over it? Hell – the “major” networks would have broken into regular programming with the urgency of Michael Moore running from his car into McDonalds.

According to the GAO, O’s decree “is subject to the requirement that it be submitted to both Houses of Congress and the Comptroller General before it can take effect.” Translation: The Regime, by law, was required to submit its decree to Congress for review first – under the Congressional Review Act, which it refused to do. But, hey – no biggie: O never lets the U.S. Constitution get in his way; why would he worry about a silly little insignificant nuisance like the Congressional Review Act?

So, O has once again changed existing federal law by royal edict, without first notifying the Legislative Branch – as required by law – of his intentions to do so. Yet – neither CBS, ABC nor CNN found this to be newsworthy. And the liberal media wonders why we call them sock puppets. This is Barack Obama’s America, folks.

As to O’s edict itself – as one might imagine – two schools of thought exist regarding its impact: O says it does not gut welfare. Robert Rector – who helped draft the work requirements in the 1996 law – says it does. Via WaPo:
