While you were sleeping (Bush took over the Government)
United States President stealthily took over the Federal Government last week through a new executive order last week that takes away all autonomy from Agencies, according to public interest organizations.
The order amends a series of previous executive orders that culminated in Executive Order No. 12,866, which the White House has used to give itself the power to review regulations before they can be officially published in the Federal Register.
The new order applies the review power not just to regulations but also to what it calls “significant guidance documents.”

Since he lost control of the "rubber stamp" congress, now Dick Cheney wants him to consolidate executive power to grasp onto the wanning power of the presidency! These people value power over the public good!
