Critics Slam Obama Administration for 'Hiding' Massive Saudi Arms Deal
But some critics are questioning the deal, and the stealthy effort by the Obama administration to avoid a more probing congressional review by notifying Congress last month, just as members were headed home for the November elections. Congress had 30 days to raise objections -- a review period that concludes Saturday. With most members leaving Washington today, any significant effort to block the deal appears dead for now, officials said.
First, do you like how ABC has "hiding" in quotation marks? No bias there.
Get used to this folks, this is just the beginning. Obama's solution to a divided Congress will simply be to bypass them. There will signing statements, Executive Orders, policy decisions by agencies such a the EPA, TSA, Homeland Security, etc.
Much of it will be illegal but that's not a problem, he will likely be out of office long before most of the decisions can be heard by the Supreme Court which means he will have his way. Other decisions will simply stand either partially or fully.
The next 2 years will certainly be interesting.
