How Do I Know George Bush Is Not The King Of The United States?

Because the federal courts said so today:

The Government appears to argue here that, pursuant to the penumbra of Constitutional language in Article II, and particularly because the President is designated Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, he has been granted the inherent power to violate not only the laws of the Congress but the First and Fourth Amendments of the Constitution, itself.

We must first note that the Office of the Chief Executive has itself been created, with its powers, by the Constitution. There are no hereditary Kings in America and no power not created by the Constitution. So all “inherent power” must derive from that Constitution.”

I will take a wild guess that Dick Cheney is not too happy about this.

Good.

Now will the media start paying attention to all the authoritarian, anti-democratic practises of this administration?

Don't hold your breath.
