"In the end, President Bush regularly is unable to explain or defend the policies of his own administration, and that is because the heavy intellectual labor has been performed in the office of the vice president.

It is genuinely scary the things that this administration has done to the country. And the precedents they set will be enshrined in our government if Congress doesn't act.
Let's hope they have the courage to do so.
