Bush's Invisible Ink

Signing into law bills from Congress, the president often adds that he won't enforce them.

In his signing statement, and in scores of violations of the Constitution, detailed in this column starting after 9-11, Bush has unilaterally assumed "the pretending power" to issue "regal" suspensions of our rules of law.

So long as there is a Republican-controlled Congress, however, I doubt very much that the Specter-Fein legislation—to strip this king of his false authority to degrade the separation of powers—will have any effect.

So, do the so-called leaders of the Democratic Party plan to campaign at all, during the forthcoming elections, on the actions of this "regal" president?
