    wasn't this a case started against bush where obama is now the substituted named defendant?

    either way... overturning the rule that if someone has an attorney or has asked for one would be bad law.

    and if its something that alito wants, it can't be good.

    It sounds like Bush.

    The basic Bush philosophy was that defendants don't need rights because if they are accused they are guilty of being terrorists. And that is coming from a two time Bush voter... damn Democrats could not offer a decent alternative, not even once. :D

    And for you that are out there who continue to support Bush, well, let me remind you that you have no right to bitch if President Obama continues to steal your civil rights. You threw the door open for Bush. It is a bit late to slam the door now.

    If Barry was still practicing law instead of being the nation's top law enforcement official, do you think that he would be supporting such a change?

    Rhetorical question: The answer is an emphatic NO..............

    Funny how when Lefty goes from railing against The Man to becoming The Man how his view on things changes..............

    Did you read the article?:
    Correct me if I'm wrong, Neither Bush 41 nor 43 was Prez at the time.
    More from the article:
    Example:
    Defendant asks for a Lawyer, Police stop questioning, then Defendant says, for whatever reason, "Yeah, I'll make a statement". What's wrong with that?
    That's really no different than when defendants make a statement immediately after they're read their rights.

    and if Jillian is correct, then how much worse is the charge of Bush III for Obama?

    Leave Mr Bush out of it.
    The article I posted is about the current administrations actions.

    Mr Bush being a prick is no excuse for Mr Obama to be a prick and you know that.
