Give up on the constitution?

The Bush administration did that when they created, passed and signed the "Patriot" Act into law.

And your whining about an interview?

Poor teabagger.

you got that right and G.W. Bush never Vetoed a signal bill and its all in the book titled

Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy

Bruce Bartlett, a veteran of the Reagan White House and Treasury Department, argues that George W. Bush has betrayed the Reagan legacy by expanding the size and scope of the federal government and letting the federal budget mushroom out of control. He charges that the Medicare expansion of 2003 may be “the worst legislation in history” and raises the question of whether Bill Clinton was a better fiscal conservative than Bush. Bartlett writes as a fiscally conservative Republican and worries that his party will have little future if it loses the trust of voters who want small government and fiscal responsibility. Blogger extraordinaire Andrew Sullivan will comment on Bartlett’s critique and the state of American conservatism.

Actually he vetoed 12 bills.

July 20, 2006

President Bush issued the first veto of his five-year-old administration yesterday, rejecting Congress's bid to lift funding restrictions on human embryonic stem cell research and underscoring his party's split on an emotional issue in this fall's elections.

As of December 2008, President George W. Bush had vetoed only 12 bills since taking office in January 2001. Only one Presidential veto occurred before Democrats took control of Congress in January 2007. This is the fewest Presidential vetoes of any modern President; in March 2006 Bush set a 200-year veto record. Source: US Senate.

you are right and that make sense because the book "Imposter, How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy" was actually released in 2006 but everything Bruce Bartlett predicted in the book which he wrote prior to 2006 came true in 2008 and the chickens did come home to roost with no money to pay for the Programs signed into law under Bush which is why the Deficit ballooned under Obama and the only alternative was to borrow for Bush's expenditures & obligations he signed into law.

Capitalism works fine at the small-business level - the local grocery, the local coffee shop or garage, the local curio shop, whatever. Small local chains work pretty well, farmer's markets where people can sell produce and meats...local craft fairs where people can sell crafted items. You can know and deal with people at that level.

In the modern world, though, the level of complexity almost requires corporate-sized busineess, and it's completely untrustworthy. Corporations remove personal responsibility from capitalism, substituting banks of lawyers and lobbyists and paid legislators who protect them from their own mistakes, shoddy products, and liability. There's no accountability anymore, just greed and the bottom line.

Which is why corporate capitalism needs serious governmental regulation. It just DOES.

It's a pathetic troll indeed, projecting its hatred and self-loathing onto everyone else it encounters. Every post shrieks out its inadequacy as a human being.

Really sad.
