From the Obama Irony File

By Harrison, on July 29th, 2009

From a 2004 interview with then-Senator Barack Obama:

BARACK OBAMA: …When you rush these budgets that are a foot high
and nobody has any idea what’s in them and nobody has read them.

RANDI RHODES: 14 pounds it was!

BARACK OBAMA: Yeah. And it gets rushed through without any clear
deliberation or debate then these kinds of things happen. And I think
that this is in some ways what happened to the Patriot Act. I mean you
remember that there was no real debate about that. It was so quick
after 9/11 that it was introduced that people felt very intimidated by
the administration.

Of course, when you’re a Democrat and you rush things like the
stimulus, Cap and Trade, or Obamakare these “little details” don’t apply.
