    Can he do that retroactively after signing a bill?

      you beat me to it - right below ya.  

      Rise like lions after slumber in unvanquishable number. Shake your chains to earth like dew, which in sleep had fallen on you. Ye are many - they are few.

    •  It's no longer "Can I do this or that?" (0+ / 0-)

      in Bush-Cheney's sick little pas de deux, it's "I can do what I damn well please, and what can you do to stop me?"

      I've read where, after they get away with their first kill, serial murderers often feel this tremendous release, this epiphany of "I can really, really do whatever the hell I want, and no rules, no laws, no moral or ethical restrictions can stop me." I often feel that the Bush folks are still running on a similar rush. The American Psycho presidency.
