It’s really amazing how concerned Republicans and Democrats got about what is and what isn’t constitutional after a Congressman was found with 90,000 in his freezer during an office raid. Dennis Hastert, who has spent the last five years smearing Democrats as Anti-American Al Qaeda sympathizers, lept to the defense of Jefferson saying:

“The Founding Fathers were very careful to establish in the Constitution a Separation of Powers to protect Americans against the tyranny of any one branch of government. They were particularly concerned about limiting the power of the Executive Branch.”

Should they be concerned about how the raid was executed? I don’t know, probably. But if they are suddenly concerned with the expanding Executive Branch, Guantanamo Bay, wars of aggression, Abu Ghraib, Jose Padilla, rendition, secret CIA prisons, torture, signing statements, and NSA wiretapping are a few issues that come to mind when I think of what the Founding Fathers would not have wanted.
