Defiant King George II vows to continue spying on U.S. citizens....

In what may well be the most outrageous example of dictatorship, Pres. Bush vows to continue spying on U.S. citizens. Associated Press reports:

The president said he would continue the program "for so long as the nation faces the continuing threat of an enemy that wants to kill American citizens," and added it included safeguards to protect civil liberties.”

Bush, who is known more for brashness than brains, tried to strong-arm senators who disagree with him:

"’I want senators from New York or Los Angeles or Las Vegas to go home and explain why these cities are safer’ without the extension [of the Patriot Act].”

Democrats are up to the challenge!

Sen. Carl Levin responded, “Where does he find in the Constitution the authority to tap the wires and the phones of American citizens without any court oversight?"

Sen. Russ Feingold said, "We will not tolerate a president who believes that he is the sole decision-maker when it comes to the policies that this country should have in the war against terror and the policies we should have to protect the rights of completely innocent Americans…He is the president, not a king."
