Bush quietly sets up his dictatorship

Bush challenges hundreds of laws
President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution.
[NYU law professor David] Golove said that to the extent Bush is interpreting the Constitution in defiance of the Supreme Court's precedents, he threatens to ''overturn the existing structures of constitutional law."

A president who ignores the court, backed by a Congress that is unwilling to challenge him, Golove said, can make the Constitution simply ''disappear."
Aren't you just so pleased now that you know President Bush has been ignoring over 750 laws, so that he can do whatever the hell he wants?  Aren't you just so happy to know that your President believes he's above the law? 

If the law is disregarded, and you have a President doing whatever he wants, what do you really have?

A dictatorship.  The dictionary defnes it as: A form of government in which the ruler is an absolute dictator (not restricted by a constitution or laws or opposition etc.)  Seems to me that the US President is certainly not restricted by a constitution, laws or any opposition.

Good on you America.  Welcome to your new world.
