Thanks for this info Mr.Limbaugh. This clearly shows how President Obama has abused his power. It seems that I've heard of quite a few times that Obama has invoked his executive privilege. Since the TV has shown by numbers how many times that previous previous presidents used their executive privilege, I'd like to know of Obama's record on this.

Few principles are more important to our constitutional scheme than the separation of powers, which is precisely why President Obama's bogus assertion of executive privilege to thwart Congress' investigation into Fast and Furious is so inexcusable.

Executive privilege is an important safeguard against congressional overreach and to preserve the separation of powers. The inherent right of the executive to protect highly sensitive information has long been recognized, and the privilege was judicially established during the Watergate era.

As such, Congress should not go on fishing expeditions against a president to score political points. But neither should a president...
