I found this L.A. Times article on Truthout.com By trying to stack the court he thought he’d have them in lockstep with him. Didn’t quite work out that way at least on this vote. Every time I see Republicans trying to back away from Bush I think of swimming lessons when I was a kid. Do you remember treading water backwards? I do and I was very good at it…better than my swimming in the forward direction. Anyway tread on Republican friends…the Constitution was written for you too. Now go out there and protect it…this Guy isn’t out of office…yet.
