  •  And Truman was shot down (none)
    ... and thank god he was. By an unanimous court that said he had to follow the law.  BTW, many (R)'s were rightly opposed to Truman's power grab.  But, then, he was not a (R).  No doubt the hypocritical bastards would be doing the same if it were Hillary in office right now.

    •  Indeed (none)
      Let's wait and see until some of Bush's grabs are challenged in courts.  Hopefully he will be similarly shut down where he overreached.

      As a side note, the Court wasnt unanimous.  It was 6-3.

      •  Brilliant (none)
        You're in the legal profession and you make this statement:

        Let's wait and see until some of Bush's grabs are challenged in courts.  Hopefully he will be similarly shut down where he overreached.

        Are you fucking kidding me?   Let's wait and see until some of Bush's grabs are challenged in courts?

        Uhhh have you been living under a rock for the last few years?   Bush's power grabs have been challenged in courts more times than I can count and it has achieved virtually nothing....legally OR politically.  

        George W. Bush, Resign NOW.
