The NYT has concerns for our Constitution

i wish to hell they'd address our constitutional crisis head-on instead of beating around the bush... (sorry, that was a rotten but completely intentional pun, a variety harder to swallow than the unintentional kind...)
President Bush is notorious for issuing statements taking exception to hundreds of bills as he signs them.


The Bush administration’s disregard for these laws is part of its extraordinary theory of the “unitary executive.” The administration asserts that the president has the sole authority to supervise and direct executive officers, and that Congress and the courts cannot interfere. This theory, which has no support in American history or the Constitution, is a formula for autocracy.


When the Bush presidency ends, there will be a great deal of damage to repair, much of it to the Constitutional system. Congress should begin now to restore the principle that even the president and those who work for him are not above the law.

so, nyt, please tell me, what the fracking hell does "begin now to restore" mean...? hmmmmm...? what precisely would that look like...? hmmmmmm...? we've got a major, MAJOR, problem here in this country, namely, that we are losing on a daily basis everything that we were founded on... so, CALL IT FOR WHAT IT IS, WOULDJA PLEASE...?
