Hoo boy. Can't wait to see the newspapers tomorrow morning.

So apparently he said it was OK because he decides what's classified and what isn't. I guess the consequences of outing a covert field agent is small potatoes when you can stick it to her husband for telling the truth about Iraq.

Thoughts?

The sad thing is he really really should be impeached for this (he's not denying he did it), but it actually IS legal (well, what he did), so no impeaching.

I do get sick of the American people just sitting on their asses and doing jack except for a select few. I don't care if you're Democrat or Republican. This stinks. This President has serious issues with Checks and Balances, first with wiretapping, the Patriot Act (Which would be okay if it didn't give the Government SO MUCH POWER), and now this.

I have no problem with Republicans. I don't agree with the overall view but there HAVE been good Republican Presidents and governments, and there are actually a few republican viewpoints I agree with (Would you believe I'm actually for the Death Penalty?). It's the Neo-Conservitive viewpoint I utterly, utterly hate with every fibre of my being. And maybe with a GOOD, smart government maybe it could have worked. Maybe. But based on the overall viewpoints it has it's so easy to just get carried away with 'demoracy or nothing!' and have severe power issues. I hope history will see this entire neo-conservitive viewpoint as being an utter failure.

For the sake of arguement, name ONE thing that has worked within the past four years. The only thing I can think of on the top of my head is how the Surpreme Court shaped up.

Normally I keep my mouth shut on politics because I expect to be flamed, but this made me so angry.

Here's the proof on the whole legality thing, btw:

Well, I have no complaints about Roberts, but Alito is a pro-government schill who would argue in favor of everything Bush has done thus far because of the fact that he's the President, nothing more.

This is the same guy who had a woman and her young girl strip-searched in front of male police because her drug-dealer husband may or may not have hidden them in their clothes.

And yeah, I guess it is perfectly legal to sign the death warrant of numerous covert agents by outing one of their colleagues.

God I miss the days when Republicans were PRO Small Gov't.

*Sigh* I miss the Regan Conservatives.

I think what really bugs me most (and I failed to mention this before) is that Bush tends to validate everything he does because of terrorism. Iraq was because of terrorism (and the information was faulty). Wiretapping is to stop terrorism. I'm almost getting the feeling that if Bush got drunk and decided to take a dump on the White House lawn and got caught, it'd totally be okay because he did it to fight terrorism!

...Okay, no, I don't imagine that happening, but I sat there laughing at the mental picture for quite a while. I'm a sick, sick woman. ;)

And to whoever mentioned the Justices, I agree. I don't mind Roberts but for the MOST part (except for Myers...I THINK that was her last name.) Bush essentially got what he wanted with the Supreme Court -- a right leaning one.
