The scariest thing Bush has ever said


Defending his illegal wiretapping activities once again today, Bush said something that should scare the hell out of every person in this country and the world:

"Congress gave me the authority to use necessary force to protect the American people, but it didn't prescribe the tactics.''

In other words, Bush can and will use whatever "tactics" he wants to, including "force," to "protect" us.

And of course it's all legal, according to Bush, because he says he had "all kinds of lawyers review the process." Lawyers like Harriet Miers?

Oh, and by the way, Bush has come up with a new name for his domestic spying activities: "Terrorist Surveillance Program." As if everyone they spy on is a proven terrorist (and if so, why aren't the terrorists already in prison?).

Giving this man any kind of unlimited power is frightening.

HEY THANKS! Keep up the good work and the pressure against President Bush to keep him from finding out what we are up to! - from a sleeper-cell al-Qaida agent in New Jersey.
