Is anybody else embarrassed?
from - Buck
The power grab that our current President has engaged in since day one has been fascinating to watch. He governs as if his day in the sun will never end. His only concern with law is the affect it has on others. He sincerely believes that his position is above the law and as long as he holds that position then he too is above the law.
I do not believe he is an evil person. I believe he is a person who sincerely believes that if a President does it then it is not possible for it to be illegal. He believes that the Executive branch is the law and that the law is the Executive branch. I really believe that he has no concept of the balance of and sharing of power.
I am not so much scared by the actions of Bush the Son as I am by his ability to do the things he does with absolute impunity. He has a 33% approval rating and yet he still rattles his sword? Where is the Congress? Do they also believe that absolute power should rest with the executive branch?
Our bellicose foreign policy is exactly why gas prices are at $3.00 per gallon and I am beginning to believe that this is not an unintended consequence. If we start shooting in Iran and the price of gas goes to $6.00 per gallon or higher I am not so sure that I will believe that even that is an unintended consequence.
Sometimes I feel like I am living in an episode of The Twilight Zone.
