And here's why Bush's most stubborn supporters had darned well better start worrying up a sweat...
George W. Bush set a horrible precedent with his abuse of executive orders and signing statements (which are how he got around the letter of the law a lot of times, by "interpreting" legislation according to his own whims and declaring that it was his executive privilege to do so). And for most of the past decade, the "Bush-bots" have cheered him on... even when he's grievously violated the Constitution in the process.
And now that very same power is going to land in the hands of Barack Obama.
Can you people who have thought Bush could do no wrong these eight years, possibly be capable of understanding what that means?
I've said it since last week: Barack Obama will not be a good President. But he would not have the potential to wreck so much havoc if George W. Bush had not shown him how to do so in the first place.
In the end, if Obama's tenure as President is a disaster, it will be, quite sincerely, Bush's fault.
And I'm gonna go ahead and tell y'all that beforehand.
