Quote of the Day: "The president is revealed as the leaker-in-chief."

That was House member Jane Harman (D-CA) in response to the news that Scooter Libby's disclosure of classified information in 2003 was approved by President Bush. Certainly, the President has the right to de-classify information, but it remains to be seen if he followed the proper procedures to do so in this case.

"Procedures? We don't need no stinking procedures!"

No doubt, Mr. Bush will use his well-worn rationalization, "We're at war, man!", to justify his actions. As we know all too well by now, war - or "war", as the case may be - allows the President to do anything he damn well pleases. He can cry war and, almost immediately, all laws lose their relevance when it comes to this president. Nice.

All hail our Leaker-in-Chief! (not)

Got any examples to cite?

Or is the Bush Derangement Syndrome talking?

Surely, you jest. There isn't enough time in the day to list all of the examples.

You must be a Bush apologist. How embarassing.

So in other words you really don't have any.

You just hate Bush.

Which is well within your right. Of course to the rest of the world outside the left-wing echo chamber, your ramblings make you look like a complete jackass.

"The left wing echo chamber"? So I guess that includes the 63% of Americans who strongly disapprove of Bush's job performance?

Listen, there's no denying that Bush is now one of the most disliked and disapproved Presidents...ever. Clinton's largest percentage of "strong disapproval" was just 33% at the height of the Lewinsky issue. Bush puts those numbers to shame.

And speaking of shame, have you none? Apparently not. And neither has Bush.

Examples? Torture. No legal protections for detainees. Warrantless spying on domestic targets. Signing statements that he uses to justify the ignorance of passed and signed LAWS. The list could go on and on. And you know it.

"The left wing echo chamber" is pretty darn noisy these days. But they're not echoes. They're actual voices of the majority of Americans who are utterly disgusted by this administration.

If Bush did no wrong and broke no laws in his approval of the leak, then why the hell didn't he just come clean with it back when he was vowing to fire the person resonsible? That's a real question, but not one that I expect to be answered.
