1:Bush defended his order permitting the National Security Agency to listen in on phone calls and read e-mails of Americans suspected of communicating with terrorists. Critics claim the program violates civil liberties and say the government is circumventing the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.Are Are you kidding me? You can't tell us how it works, but you are suggesting we take it on faith that you are protecting us. Not this camper.
"I have looked at this program from all angles, and my dilemma and my problem is I can't explain to you how it works in order to justify your question without telling the enemy what we are doing," he said.
2: Asked if he thinks there is anything a president cannot do if he considers it necessary in an emergency, Bush said he thought there were "clear red lines" a president cannot cross.Gee, ya think? I require more definative answers from the "leader" of the free world.
"I don't think a president can ... order torture, for example," Bush said about his presidential powers under the Constitution. "I don't think a president can order the assassination of a leader of another country with which we're not at war."
3: On a personal note, Bush said that after he leaves office, he may be interested in setting up a think tank where young scholars could write and think about freedom and liberty.Hey Skippy, let's you and I see if we can get in on the graft syphoning lobyist dollars from Native American Cash. Wahoo! Then we can pursue liberty and freedom while ejaculating all over America.
