Four months into a new administration and the Bush Derangement Syndrome sufferers on the Left still can't let go of their hate from the former President (whose respectfully stayed silent on matters concerning the Teleprompter-In-Chief). Yet, vengeance-seeking liberals who've taken to the courts to get back at Bush and Dick Cheney, are finding themselves having a hard time finding anyone to side with their loonery:
A unit of the White House that was accused of misplacing perhaps millions of office e-mails does not have to make its records public, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday.Then there was this BS concerning a bunch of illegal immigrants who claimed that they were subjected to "harsh" conditions at a holding cell after being arrested in New York post-9/11. So one of the illegals got himself lawyered up and tried to pin his supposed rough treatment on, of all people, then-Attorney General John Ashcroft:
The decision was a victory for the Bush administration, which sought to shield its internal communications.
The three-judge panel in Washington concluded the Office of Administration is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act over disclosure of its documents because "it performs only operational and administrative tasks in support of the President and his staff and therefore, under our precedent, lacks substantial and independent authority."
The latest opinion stems from a ongoing lawsuit by private groups over allegedly missing electronic messages, and allegations that the White House failed to properly monitor its internal communications among staff.
A closely divided Supreme Court on Monday threw out a Pakistani man's civil rights claim against former attorney general"Impeach Bush!"
John Ashcroftand FBIDirector Robert Muellerfor abusive treatment he says he received when arrested with other Muslims in New Yorkafter the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The court voted 5-4 — with the more conservative justices in the majority — that the man failed to present enough facts early in the case that his treatment in detention arose from policies Ashcroft and Mueller created and directed that discriminated based on race or religion. The more liberal justices dissented, saying the former detainee had made concrete allegations and the majority's standard could make it harder for victims of government wrongdoing to bring claims of constitutional violations.
Oh wait, they can't do that anymore. Bush-haters really need to get a life.
