Greenwald frames the Alito nomination

on crooks and liars, where he's accepted john amato's invitation to submit the occasional guest blog... he's doing a damn good job too...
What is at stake with this nomination is whether we are going to have a country that endorses and allows George Bush’s theory that the permanent war we are fighting gives him the right to violate whatever laws he wants to violate. All indications are that Alito is at the very extreme fringe when it comes to deference to Presidential authority and power -- exactly what is most dangerous for the country right now. A country where the President can break the law and claims the power to do so is an extreme and radical situation -- at least for the United States -- but this is what Sam Alito represents and it is why he was chosen by George Bush for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court...

i couldn't agree more and have been saying precisely the same thing myself, repeatedly......
