Tony Snow On Executive Privilege

Via Glenn Greenwald:

Evidently, [the President] wants to shield virtually any communications that take place within the White House compound on the theory that all such talk contributes in some way, shape or form to the continuing success and harmony of an administration. Taken to its logical extreme, that position would make it impossible for citizens to hold a chief executive accountable for anything. He would have a constitutional right to cover up. . . . Most of us want no part of a president who is cynical enough to use the majesty of his office to evade the one thing he is sworn to uphold -- the rule of law.

Hear hear Tony! . . . Oh wait . . . Signing off folks. Until tomorrow.

    What military, diplomatic or sensitive national security secrets are involved with Karl and Harriet's testimony regarding the firing of prosecutors who failed to demonstrate they were loyal Bushies because they were persecuting...er... prosecuting Republicans...

    How does the money trail that fired US Attorney Carol Lam traced (in the Duke Cunningham bribery case) to Cheney involve military, diplomatic or sensitive national security secrets? Is the bribing of GOP congressmen by the military industrial complex a military, diplomatic or sensitive national security secret?

    Well, ummm..... Hmmph. (none / 0) (#3)

    Isn't there a quote somewhere from a faux snooze anchor saying he would never drink the koolaid?
