Bush Thinks Little of Constitution

In case you missed it (and if you rely on the mainstream media for your news, you probably did), President of the United States George W. Bush thinks the Constitution is “just a goddamned piece of paper.”

Now, think about that for a minute. Pursuant to Article 2 Section I of the Constitution, the president takes the following oath of office: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” But now we have a situation in which the person who has sworn to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution opines that it is “just a goddamned piece of paper.”

Actions usually speak louder than words, and the actions of Bush and the neocons have shown us that they see the Constitution as little more than a rag for polishing their jackboots. But now we have the admission straight from the mouth of POTUS himself that he regards the legal foundation of the state as a mere scrap of paper.

When, oh when, will the impeachment proceedings begin?
