Obama at UN last week: US too sovereign — Obama after landslide override of his 9/11 bill veto: It’ll make US less sovereign

Congress overrode an Obama veto for the first time, with the Senate voting 97-1 and the House voting 348-77 to go over the president’s head and make the 9/11 bill a law. Harry Reid was the one senator who sided with Obama, probably mostly because he’s not running for re-election anyway. But at least it’ll give him something to complain about in his remaining Senate days while he swats at imaginary flies with faces that look just like Charles and Fred Koch.

Here’s what struck me about all this: Just last week, Obama was telling the festival of globalist bureaucrats that the United States has too stop clinging to the notion of national sovereignty:

In his final speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, President Barack Obama said the United States has to give up some freedom in exchange for security.

“We can only realize the promise of this institution’s founding to replace the ravages of war with cooperation if powerful nations, like my own, accept constraints,” Obama said.
“Sometimes I am criticized in my own country for professing a belief in international norms and multilateral institutions,” Obama told the assembly of foreign diplomats. “But I am convinced in the long run, giving up some freedom of action, not giving up our ability to protect ourselves or pursue our core interests, but binding ourselves to the international rules over the long-term enhances our security.”

After Congress overrode his veto Wednesday, Obama said it was a vote that will damage American sovereignty:

Maybe this is a clue why Obama is a sovereign immunity fan:

This principle is commonly expressed by the popular legal maxim rex non potest peccare, meaning “the king can do no wrong.”

Now it makes sense.
