The 'We Can Do Whatever We Want To Do' Administration
I was also reading about how Mr. Bush is jumping through legalistic hoops to say what torture is, or we legally do what we legally can do...and I was thinking about how these folks were all over Mr. Clinton when he legalistically parsed the meaning of "is".
I can almost hear Mr. Bush saying, 'that depends on what the meaning of torture is' and the chorus of his supporter saying it’s just fine because he’s a War President™.
But Bill Clinton using lawyerly legalistic language to defend himself against spurious charges not only indicates that he is a liar, but also ingles the downfall of society. Mr. Bush parsing means and application of torture Is just fine.
