    BUSH EXPLAINS HIS SIGNING STATEMENTS

    They sent me a law against torture.
    I signed it, althought it was quaint.
    I said, though, that I'm the decider
    Of if something's torture or ain't.

    I'll do what I want when I want to,
    Though Congress's will may be foiled.
    I've always done just what I want to.
    You see, I'm a little bit spoiled.

    The Congress wants mail left unopened,
    Except through a court. They were blunt.
    I signed that, but said in a statement
    We'll open whatever we want.

    I'll do what I want when I want to,
    That's deep down in my DNA.
    I've always done just what I want to.
    And Nanny Dick says it's OK.

    The citizens spoke in November
    They said that my war is a flop.
    So what? I will order more troops there.
    I'm boss, and I'm not going to stop.

    I'll do what I want when I want to,
    It's what I've done all my life long.
    I've always done just what I want to.
    It's lucky I've never been wrong.

    Cal Trillin is one of the funniest people around. When he had a column in The Nation it was the only bright spot in that usually dismal rag.

    At least he's honest enough to give a signing statement. Previous Presidents (and Clinton was the worst of the lot on this) just issued a secret Presidential Order circumventing the law they had just signed.

    Always willing to give The Chimp a pass... always willing to deny, obfuscate and rationalize away his loathsome actions by frantically pointing at Clinton or some other bogeyman. As if two wrongs make a right, somehow.

    Not at all. I'm pointing out this is nothing new, and at least he's up front about it. I'd think you'd applaud that, even if you don't agree with the statements.

    But then, he can't do anything to make you happy, so why worry?
