Stonewalling Bush

It seems as though our president has taken stonewalling to a new high (or low, as the case may be). There's nothing that comes out of this administration that is, in the words of the president, "transparent." Everything is cloaked in secrecy, on a need-to-know basis.

I, for one, am sick and tired of this administration's skirting the law, flouting its power, and forestalling any and all oversight. Tony Snow said that the Congress had no constitutional right to oversight of the Executive branch. I'm no constitutional scholar, but I think Congress has a bitch here. Seems to me that the founding fathers, so often cited as if they're gods by this administration, intended that there by (grade school civics don't fail me now)...checks and balances.

Our whole government is predicated on this concept of checks and balances: No one branch can impose its will or bully its way into doing something. But President Bush and "Alberto" disagree. They believe that George indeed should be King.

The linked story is just one of many examples of how this administration stonewalls its overseers.
