The Supreme Court's decision was entirely predictable. Myself and others pointed out that the chances were very good that SCOTUS would uphold this law, so George Bush should veto the legislation. The mob on this site that gushes over the man's every word would not hear of it.
Bush's actions in this case need to be clarified. He signed the bill into law because he favors government power over individual liberty. His actions were not a "gamble" or a "tactic." They were calculated and intentional. The tactic was his faux opposition to the legislation and the throwaway line about "doubts about the law's constitutionality." He does not actually have any principled objection to the law.
Why haven't the Presidents words on the CFR been trumpeted? I beleive he said that he is cheered by the Supreme Courts decision, but haven't seen the article on this site, or written in any paper yet.
