Can we impeach him YET?

Once again, the resident of the Oval Office has violated the oath that he took to uphold the Constitution:

President Bush has quietly claimed sweeping new powers to open Americans' mail without a judge's warrant, the DailyNews has learned.

Let's refresh our memories, shall we?

Amendment IV
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Once again, he has claimed this power through the use of a "Signing Statement" -- his own little bit of legislation, scribbled onto a bill as he scrawls his name on the bottom.

These "signing statements" have no precedent or legal standing.

His use of them is unlawful.

Those who would enforce them commit treason.
