But what caught my eye in this morning's editorial was this graf:
Under the Constitution, the president has the final authority in the executive branch to say what the law is. But as a matter of presidential practice, this is breathtaking.What Constitution are they reading? The former Soviet Union? King George III? Under our Constitution it is the Congress that makes law; the President signs it. The President can also veto a law he or she doesn't like, but the Congress has the authority to override a Presidential veto.
It is true, of course, that this President has routinely used signing statements to ignore laws written by Congress - even laws written by a Republican Congress and signed by him - and made himself into the final authority on what is the law of the land, but it is precisely this action that has turned him into a law-breaker and a criminal.
What kind of kool-aid are they drinking at the Post?
Update: And if anyone is the "final" authority it is the Supreme Court.
