      his Post-Constitution policies.  It will be known as the Post-Constitution Speech.

      Or how we need a new AUMF that gives him even more authority to kill Americans and wage war, assassinating people all over the globe.

      And wrap it up by blaming Congress for not being able to release prisoners from Gitmo who have been cleared for release but have no release in sight (even though the ACLU and others have laid out a clear path for things he can do without Congress).    On that note, I hope this speech does include an announcement that he has decided to take up some of those measures (assuming the prisoners are still alive in three weeks).
