    I think the question is: How much further is Bush willing to push the limits of presidential power?

    And how far will the Rubber Stamp Republican Congress let him go?

    Oh, and one other thought: Wouldn't this have been considered a "cover-up" by the Bush-apologists if Clinton had been the one to block an investigation of his own administration?

    As long as we let him. So, you know, pretty much indefinitely. At this point he could get a bj by a fat intern and get away with it.

    Remember when Bush said "If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier - just so long I'm the dictator." December 18, 2000

    I can't help but worry that somehow W will try to suspend the constitution altogether and declare himself "President for life".

    If so, that'd be the most productive thing he's done as President.

    This will, of course, make few waves in the media.

    But the Democrats should start hollering "coverup!" until the media really pays attention to this.

    With a stacked Republican Congress Bush has a very strong defense system.

    It's more than obvious that he knows this investigation would prove that he has broken the law and would then be subject to impeachment.

    I hate his guts, but it seems that he's covered all the bases.

    That would be hilarious if it wasn't so true.
