It is so unbelievably fitting that George Bush will be done in by his own words.
If one heads over to the official White House website, one will be treated to the following Bush remarks:
"So the first thing I want you to think about is, when you hear Patriot Act, is that we changed the law and the bureaucratic mind-set to allow for the sharing of information. It's vital. And others will describe what that means.
"Secondly, there are such things as roving wiretaps. Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires -- a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so. It's important for our fellow citizens to understand, when you think Patriot Act, constitutional guarantees are in place when it comes to doing what is necessary to protect our homeland, because we value the Constitution."
George Bush made those comments in April of 2004, more than 2 years after he had authorized wiretapping without a court order.
This now becomes more than a debate over the limits of presidential power. These remarks from Bush are now proven to be lies.
If a lie over a blowjob can result in an attempt at impeachment, than this should be a slam dunk.
Let's see how GOP hypocrites handle this one. I suspect that, no matter the outcome, his presidency will be hindered by this for the remainder of whatever term he serves.
