Bush dissolves Congress

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Hard to interpret this any other way.

Recess appointing Assistant Secretaries of Defense and DEPUTY Secretaries of Defense? General Counsel of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence? Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security? Executive Director of the Office of State and Local Government Coordination and Preparedness at the Department of Homeland Security?

Sure those are incredibly senior and important jobs, especially when our country is at war, so forget about Congress' constitutional right to advise and consent on those nominations. We're at war, damn it, and when it's the constitution versus what Bush thinks is right, it's King George who wins every time.

I'll be waiting for the Democrats to raise hell any moment now.
