Bush Violating The Constitution? DUH!

An American Bar Association task force says George W. may be violating the US Constitution. Well, "no shit, Sherlock!" The report of this task force states that Bush may have overstepped his authority in attaching challenges to hundreds of new laws. Bush has added many "bill-signing statements" to many of the laws passed by Congress that Bush signs. These "statements" suggest the president will decline to enforce some laws, and not adhere to some parts of the law because it is in the nation's best interest to do so. I have never heard of such stipulations added to bills before by presidents, but I understand it is common practice. However the ABA says Bush may have gone a bit too far. What brilliance!

An illlegal war in Iraq. Overstepping his bounds to fight terrorists by illegally wiretapping. Keeping prisoners of war, but not having to obey the Geneva Convention rules! These are just a few of the ways George W. has violated the Constitution. I would even be willing to go a bit further and say perhaps George W. has committed war crimes against humanity. Not only is Bush guilty of killing hundreds of American soldiers, but how many innocent Iraqis has Bush slaughtered. It's about time somebody brings the fact that Bush has overstepped his authority to light.

I'm glad someone's finally taking a look at it. It's frightening to me.
