I don't often bring up politics here, but today is different. From CNN:
President Bush, facing opposition from both parties over his plan to send more troops to Iraq, said he has the authority to act no matter what Congress wants. "I've made my decision, and we're going forward," Bush told CBS' 60 Minutes.
Emphasis is mine.
A typical response from this power-hungry administration. So much for democracy or public opinion. I continually get the feeling that this country is being run with a "father knows best" mentality.
I, for one, am not a child, and the way that the Bush administration operates continues to be incredibly insulting to the citizens of this nation.
