This just in: Bush has just signed an executive order giving the President de facto line item veto power over any part of the 2009 budget. Yes, kids, that’s right, the 2009 budget, which takes effect 10/1/2008, a mere 3 months, 20 days prior to Inauguration Day, 2009. Would a President McCain (God forbid) sign an Executive Order countermanding this one? Would McCain or his WH counsel know about this 1998 USSC decision that took the line item veto away from President Clinton?
What other sh*t is the outgoing administration going to pull while we’re all distracted by the election?
