No veto needed with Bush signing statements
This Charlie Savage article in The Boston Globe ought to be pretty common knowledge by now, but I'm not sure the mainstream is paying attention:
President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution.
The president can tell researchers to withhold any information from Congress if he decides its disclosure could impair foreign relations, national security, or the workings of the executive branch.
Well, that just about covers everything, doesn't it?
