Quote of Note: George W. Bush

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face, it’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

George W. Bush, President of the United States of America, to Republican Congressional leaders, quoted here.

Here's the Presidential Oath of Office:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
If "preserve, protect and defend . . . to the best of my ability" means that "it's just a goddamned piece of paper," then the Presidency of the United States is just a goddamned job that needs a new goddamned person doing it.

A bit more detail from the article:
GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

“I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”

“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

I’ve talked to three people present for the meeting that day and they all confirm that the President of the United States called the Constitution “a goddamned piece of paper.”

Did you look at the source of this "quote"?

It's a rumor-mongering wackjob with less credibility than the Weekly World News. This is almost 100% certainly bullsh*t.

And I say this as someone who deeply loathes Dubya.
