Bush claims Constitution gives him right to declare himself fuehrer during a war

And even if it doesn't, what are we gonna do about it? The congressional Democrats won't fight. Any ideas? Anyone...anyone...(sound of crickets)

From the Moonie Birdcage Liner:

President Bush (Thursday) said he has exclusive authority over a broad range of issues -- including forbidding White House officials to testify before Congress about the government's Hurricane Katrina response and ordering warrantless electronic surveillance within the United States.
"Conducting war is a responsibility in the executive branch, not the legislative branch," the president said at a 46-minute press conference. "Most presidents believe that during a time of war that we can use our authorities under the Constitution to make decisions necessary to protect us."
Democrats have accused the president of breaking the law by ordering the National Security Agency in 2002 to eavesdrop on international communications between suspected terrorists and people in the United States. Senate hearings on the once-secret program are scheduled for Feb. 6.
Mr. Bush acknowledged that "there will be a legal debate about whether or not I have the authority to do this," but added, "I'm absolutely convinced I do. And I'm going to continue using my authority."
In response to a question from The Washington Times, Mr. Bush said: "We're going to do what is necessary, within the Constitution and within the law, and at the same time guaranteeing people's civil liberties, to protect the people."

More, if you have the stomach for that fishwrap's sewage.

And for all his posturing and bull$#!+, he still can't protect us from a troop of Girl Scouts.

I love this blog! Maybe not as bad as germany, but things aint great right now. On the plus side, we will eventually win out. And the history books will look back on this as one of the most corrupt periods in american history.

I love your optimism. Add a fighting spirit to that, and we still have a chance.
