Bush Grants Self Permission To Grant More Power To Self
A couple of excerpts:
"In a time of war, the president must have the power he needs to make the tough decisions, including, if need be, the decision to grant himself even more power," Bush said. "To do otherwise would be playing into the hands of our enemies."[Note: The Onion is a satirical paper, Bush has not actually done this. Yet.]
Added Bush: "And it's all under due process of the law as I see it."
In addition, Republicans fearful that the president's new power undermines their ability to grant him power have proposed a new law that would allow senators to permit him to grant himself power, with or without presidential approval.
