    Oh Christ. Arlen, do us all a favor. Don't run for re-election, pull a Jeffords and turn independent, or even worse switch parties.

    At over 800 of these presidential caveats, one has to question whether Bush even believes in the rule of law.

    There used to at least be a head-fake in that direction...
  5. Considering that Specter also is pushing a poison-pill bill that would, essentially, make Fredo's illegal domestice surveillance legal retroactively, I feel well within my rights to say that I can't figure out what in the living hell Specter's up to.

    Arlen Specter, he of Warren Commission fame. He's credible.

    this is a strange - and highly technical - issue. maybe we need to actually read these signing statements to see what's up.

    It's good to see this move is being led by a man of integrity such as Arlen Specter.

    The president took an oath to uphold the constitution. If the president believes a bill, or part of a bill, is unconstitutional, then he should veto it. The veto is an important check on the power of Congress and one of the ways the Founders gave the president a powerful say in evaluating the constitutionality of a law.

    Unfortunately, GWB has almost never used his veto power. Instead, he has turned to these signing statements. It's perplexing and frustrating that he would sign bills and then state that he believes them to be unconstitutional.
