Smells Like the Soviet Union To Me

By Cassandra D

I can't wait until our Dictator In Chief is out of office. Here's another gem from the desk of The Decider, as reported by the New York Times:

"WASHINGTON, Jan. 29 — President Bush has signed a directive that gives the White House much greater control over the rules and policy statements that the government develops to protect public health, safety, the environment, civil rights and privacy.

"In an executive order published last week in the Federal Register, Mr. Bush said that each agency must have a regulatory policy office run by a political appointee, to supervise the development of rules and documents providing guidance to regulated industries. The White House will thus have a gatekeeper in each agency to analyze the costs and the benefits of new rules and to make sure the agencies carry out the president’s priorities.

"This strengthens the hand of the White House in shaping rules that have, in the past, often been generated by civil servants and scientific experts. It suggests that the administration still has ways to exert its power after the takeover of Congress by the Democrats.

"The White House said the executive order was not meant to rein in any one agency. But business executives and consumer advocates said the administration was particularly concerned about rules and guidance issued by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration."

"Dictator in chief" ?!?!

Cassandra, I appreciate that your are no fan of the president's, but there is still such a thing as respect for the office. He was duly elected by the people of the United States (at least in 2004), and therefore at least deserves a MODICUM of respect.

"DICTATOR in chief" ?!? Give me a break.

"Dick in chief" is more like it.

Actually, you should have titled it "Smells Like Putin," just to give it that extra whiff of shit.
