President Jekyll and Senator Hyde

Here's Victor Davis Hanson on the Corner: "You don't say..."
Whether on the issues surrounding the War on Terror, spending, the debt ceiling, the filibuster — in fact almost any issue — the indicators of Obama’s partisan demagoguing are his constant accusations that others are thinking, and must be doing, precisely what he has. After nearly five years of this, his projected moral censure has become comical.
The systematic filibustering of judicial nominees started in Obama's Senate and he supported the pro forma sessions to prevent recess appointments.  Now he affects outrage that his own nominees are blocked and unilaterally decides when the Senate is really in session.  Then there's his high dudgeon against "fishing expeditions" under the Patriot Act that became quite convenient as President.

Does this guy look familiar?

How about this fellow?  "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can’t pay its own bills. ... I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit." - March 16, 2006.
