there, fixed that for him

Sigh.

Once again, Obama demonstrates that he's as big a fan of the imperial presidency and the Endless War as Bush ever was, and not so big a fan of the constitution and civil liberties.

Here's how Andrew Rosenthal put it:
White House statements explaining why Mr. Obama has agreed to sign the bill (after he threatened a veto) note that it does not impinge on executive authority. As long as that’s secure, he simply does not seem to care about technicalities like the constitution.
This bill is not just a Bad Idea, it is a Very Bad Idea Indeed. The threatened veto should be made.

It won't be, though. They fixed the bit he didn't like.
