    Bush on the Constitution: 'It's just a godd@mned piece of paper'
    By DOUG THOMPSON
    Dec 9, 2005, 07:53

    Last month, Republican Congressional leaders filed into the Oval Office to meet with President George W. Bush and talk about renewing the controversial USA Patriot Act.

    Several provisions of the act, passed in the shell shocked period immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, caused enough anger that liberal groups like the American Civil Liberties Union had joined forces with prominent conservatives like Phyllis Schlafly and Bob Barr to oppose renewal.

    GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

    “I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”

    “Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”

    “Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a godd@mned piece of paper!”

    I’ve talked to three people present for the meeting that day and they all confirm that the President of the United States called the Constitution “a godd@mned piece of paper.”...

    Those stupid moral foundations of our constitution just mess up Georgie's plans for world domination.

    We've been saying all along that W. is a liberal. What he meant to say is "It's just a ^^@#%#$ living document!!"

    And yet another follow up from Mr. Doug Thompson:

    "An editor who taught me a lot once said: 'If you piss off both sides you're doing your job.'"

    He was just fooling around, Ern. That was in Fahrenheit 9/11.

    But it's still his face in that picture, and that's more than enough for me.
