I Feel Their Pain
I definitely sympathize with Republican Congressmen right now. They face a very difficult decision. While Puppet-master Cheney and President Bush seek to develop an imperial presidency, these Congressmen will have to decide what is more important to them. They can either protect checks and balances and the power of Congress, or defend a President of their own party whose power-grabbing could come back to bite them if Democrats ever get their act together and win the White House. I don’t envy them one bit, although I am sure you know which side I would come down on. The bottom line is that a president with this much power, whether a Democrat or a Republican, is a scary thing.
