Bush doesn't believe laws apply to him.

The least informed individual that this country has ever had the misfortune to have as President, just doesn't believe that he has to abide by the Constitution or any of this nation's laws.

And Bush is so deluded, he actually thinks that he can interpret the Constitution and laws with his limited mental abilities.

Charlie Savage puts together one hell of an article for the Boston Globe titled, Bush challenges hundreds of laws.

WASHINGTON -- President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey
more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power
to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his
interpretation of the Constitution.

Among the laws Bush said he can ignore are military rules and regulations,
affirmative-action provisions, requirements that Congress be told about
immigration services problems, ''whistle-blower" protections for nuclear
regulatory officials, and safeguards against political interference in federally
funded research.

Legal scholars say the scope and aggression of Bush's assertions that he can
bypass laws represent a concerted effort to expand his power at the expense of
Congress, upsetting the balance between the branches of government. The
Constitution is clear in assigning to Congress the power to write the laws and
to the president a duty ''to take care that the laws be faithfully executed."
Bush, however, has repeatedly declared that he does not need to ''execute" a law
he believes is unconstitutional.

I would suspect that even most of the Republicans that voted for him would want a dictator.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
