Bush and "Signing Statements"

Bush has never vetoed anything, why should he? He has control of Congress, both houses. What more could he ask for?

How about, when he signs a bill, he attaches a "Signing Statement" that says, basically, he doesn't have to follow the law if he doesn't want to. Can he do that? He has, 750 times.

The White House will say that the President will faithfully uphold the laws of the nation in accordance with the Constitution. But, what they won't say, is that if the President unilaterally decides that a law is Unconsitutional, he has stated his intent NOT to follow it.

Congress is hopping mad that the President has taken this agressive tactic to erode their power.
