Another Bush Power Grab

Prosecutor fired so ex-Rove aide could get his job
So a last second provision slipped into the PATRIOT act says the DoJ gets to put White House political cronies into these jobs, without Senate confirmation or judicial oversite.

And why would they do such a thing?

Could it be because the prosecutors were successful at prosecuting Bush cronies for bribery?

The most frightening scenario to envision regarding the replacing of all these assistant AGs is that it could be an attempt to guarantee prosecution of anyone violating curfews and other restrictions bush could put into place with the declaration of martial law.

This would also explain the no-bid contracts to Halliburton for the construction of prison camps in the deserts of the Southwest.

I don't think, given bush's track record, that all this talk of giving aid and comfort to the enemy by speaking out against the president is necessarily just normal political bellicosity and bombast, but a conditioning of the public to the idea of restrictions or elimination of free speech.

If bush continues in his mad desire for more power and greater control of the oil in the Middle East and attacks Iran, the public hue and cry will be great enough in itself.

But if he uses nuclear weapons to attack I believe the hue and cry would be utterly overwhelming, with millions of Americans out in protest of such a horrific act being committed by the government.

The perfect occasion to declare martial law, cancel elections, and assume absolute power absolutely.

Nah, not even bush would try that, right?

What about DOJ finding no crime when the Bushites commit them.
