OMG Bush jokes about seizing power but Wired's Threat Level checks it out
Read this report by Threat Level. Bush made a joke about keeping power and becoming prime minister or something. Thank heavens for bloggers or citizens or whomever who takes the time to file FOIA requests to see what the government agencies, including the Att'y. Gen'rl. are planning, or not planning.
Despite the president's occasional contempt for the law, THREAT LEVEL doesn't believe that he's going to declare a state of emergency and cancel the 2008 election. But in July, we filed some FOIA requests anyway. We asked five Justice Department offices for documents produced or revised after August 2001 "addressing the feasibility, advisability or lawfulness of deferring, rescheduling or canceling a U.S. national election."
