Bush: "[The Constitution] is just a goddamned piece of paper"

It’s hard to be surprised by anything that George Bush or his cronies say these days, but it’s still important to get the word out.  There’s still a large proportion of the U.S. population that thinks he’s doing a good job.  Capitol Hill Blue reported several years ago on yet another Bush-ism:

“I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”

“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

The grammar certainly sounds like it could only come from Bubba Dubya.  Thought it probably doesn’t even matter, the issue at hand was wiretapping and surveillance.

Sadly, the very purpose of the Constitution was to protect this nation’s citizens against just such a President.  A smarter, more attentive population would have a bigger problem with this.  But, by King George’s standards, perhaps this isn’t as shocking as it would otherwise be.  I wonder: What more will it take to start impeachment proceedings?
