American Bar Association Criticizes Bush

An American Bar Association report released on Monday has strongly criticized President Bush’s “signing statements” that assert his right to by pass laws passed by Congress.
The ABA says Bush has challenged provisions of laws than all previous presidents put together. The group believes such a practice is a major threat to the Constitution’s system of checks and balances. It has urged Congress to introduce a legislation that would allow the court to review these “signing statements.”
A report published by The Washington Post on Monday quotes the ABA president, Michael S. Greco, as saying, “The president is indicating that he will not either enforce part or the entirety of congressional bills.”
