Lieboy - Above The Law - Again

From:Old American Century Bush signed the bill with fanfare at a White House ceremony March 9. But after the reporters and guests had left, the White House quietly issued a "signing statement," an official document in which a president lays out his interpretation of a new law.

In the statement, Bush said he did not consider himself bound to tell Congress how the Patriot Act powers were being used and that, despite the law's requirements, he could withhold the information if he decided that disclosure would "impair foreign relations, national security, the deliberative process of the executive, or the performance of the executive's constitutional duties."
Thursday, Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt., said Bush's statement represented "nothing short of a radical effort to manipulate the constitutional separation of powers and evade accountability and responsibility for following the law."

Oh really, Leahy? So why don't you have the BALLS to stand with Feingold on Censure. No more goddamned platitudes! Only Feingold, Boxer and Harkin stand for the people of the United States of America. The rest of the Senate, ALL Republicans and ALL DINOs should be FIRED! Enablers all! That wouldn't leave us very many real Democrats but at least we'd know where we stood once we quit fooling ourselves that these liars actually represent anything but their OWN best interests. People like Lieberwhore have been DINOs for so long it's criminal to attach a "D" to their treasonous names.
Even Chimp's fellow Repukes and ripoff artists KNOW this is illegal and WRONG but they will all lie down and help the thugs to destroy the Constitution. These hypocrites voted for Bush to have complete power. Can't have it both ways, boys. Inappropriate? Troubled? Can't? Be still my heart...such strong language! Traitors!

Bush "Can’t Unilaterally Decide That A 1978 Law Is Out of Date And…Violate The Law" -Sen. Chuck Hagel
"The FISA Act was–created a court set up by the chief justice of the United States to allow a rapid response to requests for surveillance activity in the war on terror. I don’t know of any legal basis to go around that." -Sen. Lindsey Graham
"There is no doubt that this is inappropriate." -Sen. Arlen Specter
"I am troubled by what the basis for the grounds that the administration says that they did these on, the legal basis…" -Sen. Sam Brownback

With "friends" like these, who the hell needs enemies?
The Washington Post's Dana Milbankpaints a vivid sketch of Democratic Senators wanting to avoid answering questions about Sen. Russ Feingold's censure proposal:
"I haven't read it," demurred Barack Obama (Ill.).
"I just don't have enough information," protested Ben Nelson (Neb.)
"I really can't right now," John Kerry (Mass.) said as he hurried past a knot of reporters -- an excuse that fell apart when Kerry was forced into an awkward wait as Capitol Police stopped an aide at the magnetometer.

... ad nauseum
