The Obama Lies: Lie #2,193 - "I will not use signing statements"


"We're not going to use signing statements to do an end-run around congress.." Barrack Obama May 20, 2008

Presidential Signing Statements Issued and Signed By 
President Obama to date: 

{ following is from http://www.coherentbabble.com }
From his inauguration through January 2, 2013, President Obama has issued 21 signing statements affecting 85 specified provisions and making six mentions of unspecified provisions of law in 20 Congressional enactments. Obama has issued eight rhetorical signing statements, 12 constitutional signing statements, and one statement remarking on an "inadvertent technical drafting error" in the affected bill.
For detailed information about how I arrived at these numbers, please consult this chart.
