I've read this 5 times already and I still can't believe what I'm reading. It's scary to think that a person who thinks like this could actually become President.
"When I'm president, we'll have executive orders to overcome any wrong thing the Supreme Court does tomorrow or any other day," said Rep. Dick Gephardt of Missouri.

Gee-Fart is an idiot. The SCOTUS can nullify EOs just the same as Congressional actions.

Hopefully this will NEVER happen.

I guarantee that after this long in government, Dick Gephardt knows that no executive order could override a ruling by the Supreme Court or any other court in the judicial branch. He said that for one reason an one reason only...the Pro-Choice constiuancy. He knows that the Democrat who wins the nomination will have to win that core group of fanatics. This is a very hot issue with the prop-choice voters right now. I am sure that you have seen a commercial or two about it

Gee, this thread could just as easily be titled, "What 2004 presidential candidate's face would you most like to see on the back of a milk carton?"
