So, is Bush preparing us for martial law? 

Am I the only one who finds it creepy that Bush is turning to the Army as the only government institution that works in emergencies?

And am I the only one who wonders how broad Bush's defintion of "emergency" is going to end up being?

"I want there to be a robust discussion about the best way for the federal government, in certain extreme circumstances, to be able to rally assets for the good of the people," [Bush] said.

Frogs in the pot... [Crossposted at the renovated Corrente Building.]

NOTE Actually, the creepiest part of this quote is Bush's use of the word "assets" for the troops.

Casey Sheehan—not a dead son, an "asset."

If that doesn't give you a clear window into the Republican soul, nothing will.
