Just saw Bush do a statement about the economy at Camp David. He took a few questions -- none of which were about the economy. When asked about yesterday's court decision about the NSA spying, he got particularly snippy:
I would say that those who, um, um, herald this decision simply do not understand the nature of the world in which we live.Then he launched in to his terror, terror, terror screed.
We know we're in a war on terror. We want the President to do everything he can to stop it. Unfortunately, he has chosen methods -- invading Iraq and undermining our constitution -- which play in to the hands of terrorists. Iraq has made the situation worse on many levels especially by diverting the fight against the real terrorists. And, the President likes to remind us that terrorists hate our free society. He's making us less free when he usurps the constitution and rule of law.
Bush said he thinks his wiretapping program is constitutional. But, he doesn't decide that. The courts do, whether he likes it or not.
