Bush: President for Life?

by Paul Gessing

Philip Atkinson, author of the book A Study of Our Decline, argues that Bush should have followed the model of Julius Caeser in Iraq, slaughtering all Iraqis who did not comply with his demands. He also argues that he should make himself "President for Life."

If you are wondering from what hole in the ground Mr. Atkinson came, it should be no surprise that he is associated with right-wing uber-hawk Frank Gaffney and his Center for Security Policy.

While Atkinson may seem extreme, I'm sad to say that many formerly "limited-government conservatives" seem to be of the mind that we should give all power and authority to Bush and the federal government in order to protect us from the threat of "Islamo-fascism."
