Last month, Republican Congressional leaders filed into the Oval Office to meet with President George W. Bush and talk about renewing the controversial USA Patriot Act.
GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives...

“I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander—in—Chief. Do it my way.”

“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”
