More Signing Statements

Thanks to Tina at Fuzzy and Blue for this one. Here's an excerpt from her post.

===============

Well, it is 100% official: The United States of America is no longer a democratic republic. We are now a dictatorship (via Yahoo): "In the law Bush signed Weds, Congress stated no one but the privacy officer could alter, delay or prohibit the mandatory annual report on Homeland Security dept activities that affect privacy, including complaints. But Bush, in a signing statement attached to the agency's 2007 spending bill, said he will interpret that section "in a manner consistent with the President's constitutional authority to supervise the unitary executive branch." Wha-wha-what?? So Congress specifically stated that no one but the privacy officer could alter, delay or prohibit the mandatory annual report on Homeland Security dept activities that affect privacy, including complaints, but then Bush turns around and has the gall to say that he has the power to do the very thing Congress JUST said only one person (not him, mind you!) had the power to do?

She has another post covering IM's between Hastert and Foley which KOS unearthed. Amazing. At least they're both consenting adults and as far as I'm concerned, they deserve each other.
