Headline: Bush demands war bill with no strings
Yeah? Tough shit. The Bush administration seems to have difficulties with the BASIC tenets of the US Constitution. It's almost like this whole thing is make believe for President Bush. But is he still a rough ridin', straigh talkin' cowboy? Or is he King George, ruler of all Dummydom?
Yes, George, you are Commander in Chief and you have a valid argument to make in whether Congress can meddle in how you run your war. No, you cannot ignore Congress when they ask you pesky questions or exert their control of the purse. They give you the money; they get to ask how you're going to spend it.
Forget the pre-9/11 mindset, maybe George W. Bush still lives in a pre-Magna Carta world where he has the Divine Right of Kings and answers only to the Lord above? If only...you know what happens to deposed Kings, don't you George?
