MotherJones Blog: Obama to Bush: I Can Release Your Records. Don't Like It? Sue.

in Barack Hussein Obama, George W. Bush, Politics

Ohhh snap!

On his first day in office, President Obama put former president Bush on notice. His administration just released an executive order that will make it difficult for Bush to shield his White House records--and those of former Vice President Dick Cheney--from public scrutiny by invoking the doctrine of executive privilege. Shortly after taking office, Bush handed down his own executive order, amending the Presidential Records Act to give current and past presidents, along with their heirs, veto power over the release of presidential records, which are considered the property of the American people.

"[Obama]'s putting former presidents on notice that if you want to continue a claim of executive privilege that [Obama] doesn't think is well-placed, you're going to have to go to court," says Anne Weismann, the chief counsel for Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington (CREW).

Cowards and Thieves begone!!

Oh Happy Day!

in Barack Hussein Obama, George W. Bush, Politics, Terrorism

President Obama yesterday eliminated the most controversial tools employed by his predecessor against terrorism suspects. With the stroke of his pen, he effectively declared an end to the "war on terror," as President George W. Bush had defined it, signaling to the world that the reach of the U.S. government in battling its enemies will not be limitless.

While Obama says he has no plans to diminish counterterrorism operations abroad, the notion that a president can circumvent long-standing U.S. laws simply by declaring war was halted by executive order in the Oval Office.

Key components of the secret structure developed under Bush are being swept away: The military's Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, facility, where the rights of habeas corpus and due process had been denied detainees, will close, and the CIA is now prohibited from maintaining its own overseas prisons. And in a broad swipe at the Bush administration's lawyers, Obama nullified every legal order and opinion on interrogations issued by any lawyer in the executive branch after Sept. 11, 2001.

It was a swift and sudden end to an era that was slowly drawing to a close anyway, as public sentiment grew against perceived abuses of government power.

Boo-yah!

Countdown: "Bush, shut the hell up!"

in George W. Bush, Video

I seldom post and video clips of Olbermann's special comments because, frankly, they're all exceptional and I don't want to be in the position of being MSNBC's wire service.  But for this, I have to make an exception.  This is a stunning summary of Bush's disastrous legacy with the added bonus of proving that he lied about giving up golf.

Apologies for the two-part video - I couldn't find it in a single clip:
