God Save the King

In one breath Bush took his oath to uphold the Constitution. And only a few later he was promising to breach that oath in his coronation, er, inauguaration speech. Barely into the speech, the third paragraph, in fact, Bush is telling us:

For a half century, America defended our own freedom by standing watch on distant borders.

Huh? Wha? So what? As if this were our only option. We would still have freedom had we kept out of everyone’s business. But we all know what this is. He is setting himself up for the bigger mission:

The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands. The best hope for peace in our world is the expansion of freedom in all the world.

Holy flurking schnit. He really said that. Fifth paragraph in. He’s not wasting any time now, is he?

Bush’s statement should scare the living daylights out of you. It’s so damned transparent now. We all get it. We will be invading more countries before his reign is done. I wish he would just come out and say it already. He needs to just speak plainly and tell us that he is taking a big fat dump on the Constitution and threatening the lives, fortunes and sacred honor of millions of people in order to advance a very few. Why must he drag freedom’s good name into this?

Anyone know any attorneys in Belize that need a paralegal?
