Not sure how I missed this

One of my golf partners had this in bumper sticker form, and I realized I had never heard this story. To be fair, I am not sure it happened, but according to some witnesses, Bush responded harshly to some Republicans who opposed the Patriot Act renewal back in 2005.
“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 this happen? I have no idea. But it certainly represents how many of us see him approaching the constitution. This man should have never been president. Never.
