John Dean Nails Down Cheney’s True Goal
John Dean recently published an essay on Dick Cheney’s true goal, which is remarkably similar to what Cheney and the gang tried to do back in the days when he and others were scheming inside the Nixon White House. In short, the Bush White House is looking for every opportunity it can get to roll back congressional power and do what it wants unchecked by Congress, even a GOP congress.
Creating a constant war environment and passing a Patriot Act can only push this along to fruition.
From RonK, we get an actual example of Mitch Daniels and the gang at OMB carrying out such a Nixonian power grab of Congressional budgetmaking authority.
