I am the ship the state...

I've raged about this before, but Geov Parrish sums it up well:

[T]he Bush [National Intelligence Estimate] leak rationale follows an all-too-familiar theme: Bush cannot break the law, because Bush is the law....

Bush and the people around him appear to have genuinely believed, for at least the four and a half years since 9-11, that the President by definition is incapable of breaking the law.

On his sole authority laws can be ignored, overridden, or changed. Even implicitly. Even retroactively...
