If the President Does It, it must be legal.... yeah right...

Days after telling students at Stanford University that waterboarding was legal "by definition if it was authorized by the president," former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice was pressed again on the subject yesterday by a fourth-grader at a Washington school.
...
"Let me just say that President Bush was very clear that he wanted to do everything he could to protect the country. After September 11, we wanted to protect the country," she said. "But he was also very clear that we would do nothing, nothing, that was against the law or against our obligations internationally. So the president was only willing to authorize policies that were legal in order to protect the country."


[ cf 4th-Grader Questions Rice on Waterboarding ]
Hum....

So if say DearOldDick were to attack Obama, then of course DearOldDick would be wrong, since if the president does it, then it is legal. Why gosh, just like in all of the other KlinetonestaIsms....

And once again, when we return the EVIL REAGAN ERA, when it was a crime to waterboard prisoners based not upon legal discussions, but convictions in the court of law...

We arrive at the safe place, where, uh...

Where, hum, seems those Klintonesta like Condi were not so smart about what was the rule of law in America.

Clearly NOW the godless america bashing democrats need to pick up the rest of their stragglers like radical hard leftists like Condi and Friends...
