Dubyah's views of the constitution?

What does Dubyah think of the Constitution?

Apparently not much if what Doug Thomson writes at Capitol Hill Blue (see here) is true.

I wish I could say that Dubyah was only lashing out during a moment of frustration. However during moments of frustration perhaps one lets one's guard down and true opinions come to light?

Perhaps if Dubyah thinks the Constitution is "just a goddamned piece of paper" he also does not respect that he will be limited to two terms by it? Perhaps he does not even think that if he were allowed a third term he should have to run for it? We should just do away with elections, get on with it, and crown him dictator for life?

Some people object to others view of the Constitution as a "living document" (a viewpoint I myself am uncomfortable with). Surely they would then also object to a viewpoint that seems to suggest the Constitution can be disregarded altogether?

Every American should be concerned about what type of American we have serving in the Oval Office. As Doug Thomson put it, "Put aside, for a moment, political affiliation or personal beliefs. It doesn’t matter if you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent. It doesn’t matter if you support the invasion or Iraq or not. Despite our differences, the Constitution has stood for two centuries as the defining document of our government, the final source to determine – in the end – if something is legal or right."

I still do not think we need to impeach the man, but perhaps we do need to rein him in abit.
