Another Stupid Bush Tactic

Have you been following the Mukasey nomination hearings? Earlier this week, Bush's nominee for Attorney General, Michael Mukasey, refused to answer Senator's questions about whether he considers waterboarding torture. IMHO this is a perfectly legitimate question and any Attorney General nominee should be asked the question... and expected to answer it.

What was Bush's response? He said, and I quote, "If the Senate Judiciary Committee were to block Judge Mukasey on these grounds, they would set a new standard for confirmation that could not be met by any responsible nominee for attorney general," Bush said in a speech at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

"That would guarantee that America would have no attorney general during this time of war," the president said.

It is obvious that this president does not like America. He does not like the checks and balances of a three branch government where each branch is equal. He does not like our Constitution. He is an enemy of freedom. And if he doesn't get his way, well, then he is taking his ball and going home.

January 2009 cannot come soon enough!
