Ive seen all the news on this latest presidential directive and all the hype on here about giving him "dictatorial powers", but doesnt congress have to approve this?

Executive Privilege is what Bush keeps using to invent these new pieces of legislation.

Personaly, I don't like the guy.

EDIT: Thanks Mirth. I didn't know we had new image tags. Pretty cool! Now I gotta read over these new rules.

In theory, you would have do a serious overhaul of the constitution to give Bush the powers he has at present, which would almost certainly never happen BUT in practice Bush has had it much easier by just scaring everyone into ignoring the Constitution.

I don't think his power will extend beyond 2009, however.
