With a Stroke of his Pen

Yesterday George W. Bush actually signed an executive order requiring all Federal agencies and departments to be overseen by a presidential appointee.

Seriously.

So, for example, no consumer protection or food safety or environmental action can be taken without approval by someone the President appoints.

This from the White House whose previous appointees include Karl Rove, Lewis Libby, Michael Chertoff, Harriet Meiers, and Brownie. This from a president whose top domestic policy advisor took time out from his duties last year to go to Target for some felony shoplifting.

From a president who almost appointed Kenneth Lay as Secretary of the Treasury.

From a president who appointed an oil executive to censor scientific research on global warming.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: WTF??
