I don't follow that law...

The Boston Globe has a fantastic article detailing the fact that Bush believes he only has to obey certain laws--not all of them.

They report: "President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution.

Among the laws Bush said he can ignore are military rules and regulations, affirmative-action provisions, requirements that Congress be told about immigration services problems, ''whistle-blower" protections for nuclear regulatory officials, and safeguards against political interference in federally funded research."

This is a must read.

Meanwhile, the money quote from Steven Colbert at the White House Correspondent's dinner: "Your low approval ratings are based on reality and reality has a well known liberal bias"
