  • ABC/AP: Bush demands broad homeland powers

    The more I hear Bush talk and act, the more I am convinced that he may edge out Andrew Jackson as being the most dangerous President in US history.

    Here’s one notable quote from the story:

      After Bush’s speech, Daschle said Bush’s economic plan was “a prescription for greater deficits and greater uncertainty.” He also questioned the expanded authority Bush seeks under his homeland security program. Daschle said Congress should “not give this president or any president the dictatorial powers that I think compromise the checks and balances that our Founding Fathers recognized.”

    Dictatorial powers???

    Yep, Daschle is right. This is America not a bannana republic or China. It is time that Bush begins to respect the Constitutional safeguards to individual liberties that he has sworn to protect.
