LA Times: “Not so fast, Mr. President”

In its blog, "Countdown to Crawford: The Last Days of the Bush Administration," the LA Times details a recent press release issued by the Libertarian Party. 

Not so fast, Mr. President. The Libertarian Party, which bills itself as "the party of principle — smaller government, lower taxes, more freedom," this morning called Bush "an unfit ambassador of American values."

Andrew Davis, the group’s spokesman, said he was watching the Olympics when it occurred to him what an irony it was that Bush was pushing China and Russia to improve their flawed human rights records while Bush himself had curbed individual constitutional rights in the face of the 9/11 terror attacks.

One can’t take the Constitution to other countries if it has already been burned in one’s own homeland.
