GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

“I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”

“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

If only that were broadcast on TV or radio in real time. "Did you hear that?" would be a great lead in for commentator response. Then again, I'm not entirely surprised to read this.

If this is true, i don't know weather to Cry, Vomit, or curl up into the fetal position...

This wouldn't be the first time i have heard a commit like this, in fact it is becoming more and more the majority

What a terrifying world we live in.
