Anarchy on Planet Obama

Mr. Obama quit being all hopey and changey and became instead all snarky and angry because the AIG folks are getting bonuses under contracts signed before the bail-out funds were given to AIG.  He’s directed his aides to find a way to break those contracts.  Mr. Obama, a Harvard-educated lawyer, seems not to know that enforcement of contracts is one of the key functions of government in maintaining a civilization.

Senator Shumer of New York has served notice on AIG bonus recipients that if they don’t give the money back, then Congress will take it from them.  Shumer is apparently unaware that the Constitution forbids Congress from passing bills of attainder and ex post facto laws, which is precisely what his proposal is.

These people are lawless.  What’s scary is that they seem not to know it.
