Let’s not mince words: President Bush is a profound threat to the US constitution.
From the AP …
President Bush, again defying Congress, says he has the power to edit the Homeland Security Departmentâs reports about whether it obeys privacy rules while handling background checks, ID cards and watchlists.
In the law Bush signed Wednesday, Congress stated no one but the privacy officer could alter, delay or prohibit the mandatory annual report on Homeland Security department activities that affect privacy, including complaints.
But Bush, in a signing statement attached to the agencyâs 2007 spending bill, said he will interpret that section âin a manner consistent with the Presidentâs constitutional authority to supervise the unitary executive branch.â
His contempt for the rule of law needs to be ended.
