Constitution: “Just a goddamned piece of paper”
May 11, 2007
Here is something interesting that I found recently. (This is actually from ’05.. but when i found out, and my annoyance for our ‘elected’ leader has only deepen)
“GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.
“I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”
“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”
“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”
It’s pretty upsetting, for me being a american to have Bush, our ‘elected’ leader tell us that our very basis for being American is just a piece of paper. A God-Damned piece of paper at that.
something else to check out.
Aaron Russo’s movie that is coming out. Has some great insight. Doesn’t seem to be coming from a Bias slant (via either party).
Anyway. It’s always good to do a little research. That is my weekly political rant 🙂
