Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

"Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office."

I found a frightening article (thanks, Ze) in the Boston Globe about how Bush has disobeyed hundreds of laws he has signed---unprecedented in presidential history. The article is rather long, but worth the read if you're interested in how insidious this administration really is. Some choice bits:
"Bush is the first president in modern history who has never vetoed a bill, giving Congress no chance to override his judgments. Instead, he has signed every bill that reached his desk, often inviting the legislation's sponsors to signing ceremonies at which he lavishes praise upon their work. Then, after the media and the lawmakers have left the White House, Bush quietly files 'signing statements'---official documents in which a president lays out his legal interpretation of a bill for the federal bureaucracy to follow when implementing the new law."
Nowadays, I hear so much about The Worst President Ever, that I often lose sight of how real it is.

Wait, how did this happen again?
omg, as if I didn't have enough reasons to hate him already. This article has gotten me all riled up.

Like I say in my own personal blog, somehow he is able to simply deflect any and all attacks.

How did this happen you say? Don't get me started.
It's typical Bush-it. He talks about one thing and does precisely the opposite, as in he talks about democracy while practicing fascism.
