Imperial Presidency.

President Bush has not really changed any of his ways after the November election debacle. That is what this NYTimes editorial concludes.

In spite of a seemingly conciliatory tone he is using, in substance, there is not much difference in any of his policies. The administration continues to resist and impede investigations of its "inhumane and unconstitutional treatment of prisoners taken in anti-terrorist campaigns". Bush continues to use "presidential signing statements" to nullify the purpose of many of the bills passed by the Congress. (Read my post of a few months ago on this issue.) The administration continues to conduct its "rogue intelligence operations".

The Democratic majority needs to look into these issues with conviction.
