Ah, we thight so; Bush is saving his butt, or so he thinks.

Strong Executive

Harold Meyerson informs us that Andrew Card was trying to soothe Miers nomination fears by emphasizing her belief in an executive immune from meddling by those other pesky branches of government which have apparently been made obsolete. I really don't understand this. Certainly the conservative movement wants the George Bush White House to have free reign as a practical matter, but I really wasn't aware that this was a genuine conservative principle. Occasionally there are enough people who hate America and they actually vote a Democrat into office. At which point presumably all that strong executive talk will fade away. Do they really want Hillary Clinton to have unchecked power?
