This kind of lawless behavior becomes more and more irritating.
A senior administration official, agreeing to speak on the condition of anonymity to explain the timing of the congressional notification, acknowledged that the law was not followed. When he signed the law last year, Obama issued a signing statement contending that the notification requirement was an unconstitutional infringement on his powers as commander in chief and that he therefore could override it.
If you don't want to sign  the law the Constitution provides for that. The president may veto a bill that he does not want or he may simply head to Hawaii for an extended golfing adventure and the bill becomes law without him. To sign the bill and then say that you will ignore the law isn't one of the powers enumerated in the Constitution.

He damages everything he touches.
