Mediaite ^ | 5/27/14 | Noah Rothman

Costello declared that Michelle Obama signed a bill regarding her initiative into law in 2010 after it passed Congress. The Constitution, however, limits the power to sign legislation into law to Mrs. Obama’s husband, the president. Costello opened the segment by playing a speech Michelle Obama gave in 2010 in which she touted the healthy lunch

Maybe we should just pass it around and let everybody have a kick and the can so they can sign one law each and then pass it on to the next person. We should have a lot of fun with that one. Who wants to be first?

The media like to make a big deal out of the president’s signature on bills.
Presidents like to turn such events into big photo-ops like it really means something.

The truth is, the president’s signature is not even required.

THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION
Article I. Section 7.
Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate,
shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States;
If he approve he shall sign it,
but if not he shall return it, with his Objections...
If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted)
after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law,
in like Manner as if he had signed it...
-
(much less the signature of the unelected first lady)

On the contrary, they know the constitution and the law.

This is the subtle beginning of the other Obama’s campaign for 2016.

The press is already starting a sea change against Hillary. This is by design. They believe her to no longer be a ‘true believer’ in the revolution started by Ayers and Alynski. The Chicago machine was able to push her aside in 2008 before she even know what happened. The same machine will leave her in the dust again. Michelle will be the candidate in 2016.
