House on Bush

C-SPAN's rebroadcast last night of the House Judiciary Committee's hearing on executive power made a fellow proud to be an American. I found it riveting, right up to the point where I fell asleep, which just shows that it takes more than a few rivets to keep me awake at night.

But it is important and vital stuff. Everyone ought to have a look, then consider what the real issue is in the presidential campaign (hint: It isn't Obama's preacher).

Now we're left to hope that legal action follows.

For me, the issue has never been Obama's preacher and only peripherally the lies that led to the Iraq war and its mishandling from the start. What needs to be legally corrected has been the denigration of the Constitution by the Bush appointees: torture, signing statements, habeas corpus, etc.
