It's not that he was caught illegally wiretapping domestically. No, it's that he really just doesn't give a shit what you think:
President Bush said Saturday he has no intention of stopping his personal authorizations of a post-Sept. 11 secret eavesdropping program in the US, lashing out at those involved in revealing it while defending it as crucial to preventing future attacks.
All hail King George.
OH, IRONY: From that same article:
The president had harsh words for those who talked about the program to the media, saying their actions were illegal and improper.
"As a result, our enemies have learned information they should not have," he said. "The unauthorized disclosure of this effort damages our national security and puts our citizens at risk."
Yeah, leaking classified information to the media, thereby jeopardizing national security. If Bush ever finds the miserable, treasonous cocksucker who pulled that stunt, heads are gonna roll, lemme tell you.
