Here, there's an interesting post on Thomas Jefferson and his notion of "executive self-sacrifice." A crisis may come up, he thought, in which a president might have to break some laws in which to save the nation.


... and it's a big but, the president is then obligated to take his case to the people, and to be judged for what he did.

Having taken such a step (breaking laws for the good of the country), it would then be the obligation of the president to throw himself on the mercy of the public, letting them know the full scope of the facts and circumstances he had faced and leave it to them -- or rather their representatives or the courts -- to impeach him or indict those who had taken it upon themselves to act outside the law.

Bush is arguing that he can do whatever the fuck he wants, fuck you, otherwise the ter'sits'll git you.
