Democrats Urge Blurring Separation Of Powers

Remember when the Democrats were up in arms (a few Republicans too, like Hastert) over the search of William Jeffersons (D-La) office, claiming that it was an abuse of the Separation of Powers? Seems that they don't mind violating said separation when looking the other way

Senior Democrats called on Sunday for a broader review of whether President Bush had overstepped his war powers after the Supreme Court struck down his administration's Guantanamo military tribunals.

Seeking to capitalize on the sharpest judicial rebuke yet of Bush's tactics in the war on terrorism, Democratic critics said the ruling opens the door for a closer look at complaints he had improperly bypassed Congress in other areas as well.

So now the Dems don't mind meddling in the Executive Office functions.

Sen. Charles Schumer of New York accused the White House of acting as if Bush's power is "infinite and unchecked by anybody" and sent a letter to Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez seeking a review of "all their other arrogations of power."

Yes, I'm sure that the letter will recieve all the attention it deserves. In the shredder.

On another note, the article also highlighted that the Dems do not like where the result of Hamdan will go

Republicans have served notice that Democrats must back Bush on how to try Guantanamo detainees or risk being branded soft on terrorism.

But California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos, warned Republicans they would "rue the day if they politicize this."

This from the Party who politicizes everything, no matter how minor or trivial. We certainly wouldn't want them to have to discuss or vote on prisoners captured during a war they supposedly supported, right?
