Robert Scheer | There Goes the Republic

Robert Scheer, Truthdig
Scheer writes: "On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney claimed 'the most recent changes give the president additional discretion in determining how the law will be implemented, consistent with our values and the rule of law, which are at the heart of our country's strength.' What rubbish, coming from a president who taught constitutional law. The point is not to hock our civil liberty to the discretion of the president, but rather to guarantee our freedoms even if a Dick Cheney or Newt Gingrich should attain the highest office."
