Michael Gawenda sees a ghost:

Bush’s argument that the world had changed since 1978 and that America faced an unprecedented terrorism threat, that America indeed was at war, doesn’t wash.

What does wash is this from Cheney, who defended the wiretaps by saying that a contraction of presidential power since the Vietnam War and the Watergate era had to be reversed.

“I believe in strong, robust executive authority and I think the world we live in demands it,” he said.

And so bugger congress and bugger the courts. You could almost see the ghost of Richard Nixon hovering above him as he spoke.

Cheney said that during his visit to the Middle East. Gawenda was in the US at the time, apparently hallucinating.
