We didn't elect you- and we never voted for a king!It’s probably not news, but Shrubya has now formally declared himself to be above the law:

Bush challenges hundreds of laws
President cites powers of his office

WASHINGTON
— President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution.

A few examples:

March 9, 2006: Justice Department officials must give reports to Congress by certain dates on how the FBI is using the USA Patriot Act to search homes and secretly seize papers.

Bush’s signing statement: The president can order Justice Department officials to withhold any information from Congress if he decides it could impair national security or executive branch operations.

Dec. 30, 2005: US interrogators cannot torture prisoners or otherwise subject them to cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment.

Bush’s signing statement: The president, as commander in chief, can waive the torture ban if he decides that harsh interrogation techniques will assist in preventing terrorist attacks.

Dec. 30, 2005: When requested, scientific information ”prepared by government researchers and scientists shall be transmitted [to Congress] uncensored and without delay.”

Bush’s signing statement: The president can tell researchers to withhold any information from Congress if he decides its disclosure could impair foreign relations, national security, or the workings of the executive branch.

The United States was formed on a basis of checks and balances on the Executive Branch- with no exceptions for times of war. The framers of the US Constitution had learned quite a few lessons… from another King George.

King Shrubya must be stopped from his war on the US Constitution. Impeach Bush and Cheney NOW.

Don’t you just LUUURV his manly arrogance though? — I mean even…and especially, as a fellow male!

How we all want to be ‘above the law’.

After all, isn’t it the law of the jungle to aim to be the ‘Alpha Male” who resides ‘above the law’?

[…] John HoWARd- inflexible, non-dynamic and ’stuck.’ With fans like Dick Cheney and George W. Bush, it’s clear our PM occupies a redundant time line with a redundant personality type. […]
