For Bush Law Doesn’t Matter

June 19, 2007 at 9:16 am 2 comments

You or I ignore the law and we go to jail. President Bush ignores the law and he just shrugs and says “No biggey.”

From the Washington Post:

President Bush has asserted that he is not necessarily bound by the bills he signs into law, and yesterday a congressional study found multiple examples in which the administration has not complied with the requirements of the new statutes.

Bush has been criticized for his use of “signing statements,” in which he invokes presidential authority to challenge provisions of legislation passed by Congress. The president has challenged a federal ban on torture, a request for data on the administration of the USA Patriot Act and numerous other assertions of congressional power. As recently as December, Bush asserted the authority to open U.S. mail without judicial warrants in a signing statement attached to a postal reform bill.

    These Signing Statements are nothing less than a statement of intent to be a dictator. He wasn’t kidding when he said that line “it would ba a hell of a lot easier if this were a dictatorship…just so long as I’m the dictator”. He’s certainly made it a “hell of a lot easier” for himself to be “President”.

    Laws mean nothing to any dictator. Bush has destroyed our country. I am convinced he hates America.
