    We are headed for a constitutional crisis.

    They have packed the DOJ and the supreme court and its going to be very hard to force these assholes to follow the constitution.


    This is why Gonzales will be the AG until Bush leaves office.

    What should we do?

    Consider this a fresh one, because no opinion was delivered with an article?

    Or merge the two>??

    You get more idiotic with every post. Executive Privalege IS a power of the President. If Congress disagrees they have no choice but to move to the Courts. And I do love how when a liberal justices votes on the Supreme Court idiots like you think they are just following the law, BUT a Conservative Judge must be placing politics first.

    They are Judges and I prefer to believe that each of them makes a decision based more on how they BELIEVE the law works and politics is a very small consideration. I do not believe this with all Judges, since most are elected and are not vetted through the Senate.

    Err what is it you said before?...

    Ah yes...basically the exact same thing (except supporting the opposite partisan party, of course) you are now criticizing someone else for!

    Nope, the four in question think for what ever reason that they have that power. Roe vs Wade would be a prime example of Liberal Judges legislating from the bench. BUT they, in my opinion, honestly believed that what they claimed was legally correct.

    No, actually they believe they are correctly interpretating the Constitution.

    So you are of the opinion that 7 of the 9 judges in 1973 were liberal and were legislating from the bench?

    So you don't think they are completely evil....sort partially evil.

    Based on the contents of your posts it is apparent that it is you who gets more idiotic with every post but I will get to that in a minute. First, I just wanted to state that you aren't correct in your statements up to this point.

    The argument that Congress has no choice but to move to the Courts is not correct. That argument is inherently flawed because there are other methods that Congress could take outside of resorting to the Courts. The claim that they have no other choice but to move to the courts is simply idiotic. But if they were to resort to the Courts it would be to charge George Walker Bush with criminal (and less likely civil) contempt of Congress. I doubt that they would want to do so and I doubt George Bush wants to go to jail if convicted.
