    Bush on the Constitution: 'It's just a goddamned piece of paper'

    Bush on the Constitution: 'It's just a goddamned piece of paper'
    Posted by drew


    Last month, Republican Congressional leaders filed into the Oval Office to meet with President George W. Bush and talk about renewing the controversial USA Patriot Act.

    Several provisions of the act, passed in the shell shocked period immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, caused enough anger that liberal groups like the American Civil Liberties Union had joined forces with prominent conservatives like Phyllis Schlafly and Bob Barr to oppose renewal.

    GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

    “I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”

    “Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”

    “Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

    I’ve talked to three people present for the meeting that day and they all confirm that the President of the United States called the Constitution “a goddamned piece of paper.”

    And, to the Bush Administration, the Constitution of the United States is little more than toilet paper stained from all the **** that this group of power-mad despots have dumped on the freedoms that “goddamned piece of paper” used to guarantee.

    Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, while still White House counsel, wrote that the “Constitution is an outdated document.”

    Put aside, for a moment, political affiliation or personal beliefs. It doesn’t matter if you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent. It doesn’t matter if you support the invasion or Iraq or not. Despite our differences, the Constitution has stood for two centuries as the defining document of our government, the final source to determine – in the end – if something is legal or right.

    Every federal official – including the President – who takes an oath of office swears to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States."

    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says he cringes when someone calls the Constitution a “living document.”

    “"Oh, how I hate the phrase we have—a 'living document,’” Scalia says. “We now have a Constitution that means whatever we want it to mean. The Constitution is not a living organism, for Pete's sake.”

    As a judge, Scalia says, “I don't have to prove that the Constitution is perfect; I just have to prove that it's better than anything else.”

    President Bush has proposed seven amendments to the Constitution over the last five years, including a controversial amendment to define marriage as a “union between a man and woman.” Members of Congress have proposed some 11,000 amendments over the last decade, ranging from repeal of the right to bear arms to a Constitutional ban on abortion.

    Scalia says the danger of tinkering with the Constitution comes from a loss of rights.

    “We can take away rights just as we can grant new ones,” Scalia warns. “Don't think that it's a one-way street.”

    And don’t buy the White House hype that the USA Patriot Act is a necessary tool to fight terrorism. It is a dangerous law that infringes on the rights of every American citizen and, as one brave aide told President Bush, something that undermines the Constitution of the United States.

    But why should Bush care? After all, the Constitution is just “a goddamned piece of paper.”

    hey fvck face! If you believe blatant lies without any sourcing, then it's you that's closed off.

    You copy 'n paste some sort of posting off a hate bush site and you expect it to go without refuting? This board is for discussion about politics, not made up hyperbole and manufactured crap. If you believe the thread that you posted is true, then you have just enlightened the entire forum of your stupidity.

    -Day! (left out "good" on purpose)

    Guys, enjoy your time off and clean up your language. 7 days.

    Raider, you know the rules I posted. No changing the words to express cursing.
    And War__Man, come on, calling him a dick face was not necessary. You both remember this statement:

    Happy Holidays boys,

    I'm around, but not battling anyone at the moment.

    In fact, it's going to be rather boring around here without war man's posts to dispute, dissect and discredit for the next seven days. :)

    Hurry back dude before I fall asleep here. lol

    Hey you guys!!!

    What am I, chopped liver?!?! :eek: Just kidding.

    As a matter of fact Grim, I was thinking the same thing about Raider. We are all too reasonable. LOL

    Well, I guess I can catch up on some much neglected reading. :)

    Well, if nothing else, people will get a taste of what it can be like here if I apply the rules strictly by the rules.

    There ends up to be no one left to debate. Most of the favorite people to debate had little to no self control.

    And I know from past experience, this time off is killing Raider but his wife will be enjoying his participation back with the family again. It's the Holiday season, focus should be on family anyway. And since my husband just got in lastnight and is only in for two weeks, you all will be seeing less of me.

    Happy Holidays everyone,

    Lady Mod

    That is tooooooo funny !! :D :D Raider may still be reading to keep current on what's happening though. I would bet money on it. I have been working late the last three nights and I rear-ended a truck last night so things have been eventful for me anyway.

    So Lady Mod; you just gave Raider's wife a good Christmas present then right ? ;)

    Yeah we could pick on the Canadian politicians for awhile. They are quite the jackass display of political pompousness.
