    Yeah, and what Snow didn't say is that previous presidents haven't used signing statements to ignore or violate the law.

    I doubt much is going to come out of Specter's committee, but thank God he at least has "a sense" that something's wrong.

    he'll shut up about it in a day or two, once the WH has pulled him aside. but if he proves me wrong this time, i won't mind.

    I misread this thread title as "Bush defends his impotence".

    gah!...beaten to that punch...I guess great minds think alike.

    BTW, I like the use of the phrasing "civil disobedience" in reference to Bush's actions - I guess if the rhetorical shoe fits...

    Speaking of (rhetorical) shoes, it is always amusing to remember the Bush Administration's stance when it is on the other foot...

    Rush wouldn't have to defend it, he would just blame it on the Democrats.

    Supreme court doesnt think Bush is King and today has limited this sorry presidents power to conduct military war crime trials. That will teach him and the republicans whom seem to think because they are in power their sorryass president can do anything Dick Cheney wants. Not in my America! After getting the stupid flag amendment voted down and now this iam thinking there may be hope for freedom,liberty and the RULE OF LAW!

    I was close. I misread "Bush defends his importance".

    He's a short wick in a small lamp.

    Omnipotence means all knowing. Not something I'd call Bush, though I guess he does think so himself. I'm sure there's a better term, but I also thought it said impotence, so it's funny. Shows where our minds are.

    "Control issues" might have been more apt, but not as funny, so I guess omnipotence works in an ironic sort of way.

    Omnipotence means being all-powerful. Omniscience means being all-knowing. Just for the record.

    Ah, you're right. I stand corrected. Can't say I won't admit to being wrong.

    Guess I'm not omniscient. :D
