A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Word of the day: DESPOT 

a: a ruler with absolute power and authority : Autocrat b: a person exercising power abusively, oppressively, or tyrannically.

Despots thrive where there is no check on their power. Co-equal branches of government are meant to provide the cherished "checks and balances" which are the vanguard protections of the United States Constitution.

It's not surprising that one who would usurp the office would then thereafter attempt to usurp the powers of the other branches.
