Oh, yes, he did. President Obama said that in Burma yesterday. He also said this.
Pres #Obama: To protect the freedom of all voters, those in power must accept constraints… Everyone in America is "equal under the law."

#Obama: I appoint some of the Judges but that does not make me above the law nor subvert their judgement.

Stop! Our knees hurt from slapping them in fits of giggles! Could he possibly have said that with a straight face? Hey, Obama isn’t just a leader, though. He’s a Sun-God, what with being the “light and the future” and all. Totally different. Putting law above leaders is just for pesky mortals and stuff.
WE ARE no one above law! Obama tells Repubs to 'go after me' on Libya, claims Rice had nothing to do with Benghazi- Fox http://t.co/zV9tqsS7

Maybe you need to run roughshod over the law, to find out what’s in the law?
Twitter users call him out on this “practice what you preach” irony, and rightfully so.
Obama: ‘I cannot just impose my will on Congress, even though sometimes I wish I could’ http://t.co/VtsEnk30

RT @markknoller: Pres Obama urges Burma to adopt system where law is stronger than any leader. / Good idea. We should try it…

@markknoller what great irony, from a man who absolutely ignores any US laws that get in his way.
