The Bush Power Grab

Jerome Corsi was the guest on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" this a.m., talking about this article of his in WorldNetDaily ... about certain executive orders recently signed by El Presidente wherein he gets to be dictator of everything in the event of "national emergency," which he also reserves to himself to define.

At one point in the discussion Brian Lamb asked the most pertinent question: Wonder what Bush thinks is about to happen that he would take such extraordinary steps? What are they getting ready for? Or more importantly, what steps are they prepared to take to "protect" us?

The mainstream press has hardly noticed these executive orders. It made page 13 in the Washington Post.

Corsi's article, however, is generating interest, particularly on right-wing talk radio. Corsi, in case you've forgotten, is a conservative activist who co-authored the hatchet job on John Kerry, "Unfit for Command," and was deeply involved with Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. No liberal bleeding heart, he!

And WorldNetDaily is itself a conservative organ funded in part by Richard Mellon Scaife.

Can we take some heart from conservatives like Corsi and WND (and Ron Paul) that even they are alarmed by the megalomania of this bantam president and his handlers?
