President Contradiction

Because of a previous discussion, I couldn’t let this go by without mention. And hat tip to Barry.

One of the reasons people cited for wanting to be president was that they’d like to become commander of the military. Bush begs to differ.

“You can’t be the president and the head of the military at the same time,” Bush said

Any moment now we’ll hear that what he really meant was that “America doesn’t do torture” and if you keep picking on him you’ll find out in a personal way what the government’s definition of torture is. Or something similarly inspiring.

Hmmm, what do you think he meant? You think he meant he's not the president, or he's not the head of the military. Or maybe he's neither an we've been caught in the matrix all along... :P

I think he applies a different set of rules to others. He exists outside of the notion of rules.

“You can’t be the president and the head of the military at the same time,” Bush said.

And then his head exploded.

Patti - AWESOME!

What W meant was you can't be President and the leader of the military at the same time unless its in your country's Constitution. Then again, if you are both, you only have to pay attention to the parts of the Constitution that don't get in the way of performing your job as you see fit. That's the beauty of being the President and the head of the military; you have the law behind you, and when you don't you can just kick butt.

I keep forgetting our president's respect for the Constitution!

It's easy to miss.
