Bush wants control of the National Guard

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uslatest/story/0,,-5996977,00.html

The nation's governors are closing ranks in opposition to a proposal in Congress that would let the president take control of the National Guard in emergencies without consent of governors.

The measure would remove the currently required consent of governors for the federalization of the Guard, which is shared between the individual states and the federal government.

It's just getting worse and worse. These power grabs are incomprehensibly arrogant. They're getting ready for the next inside operation and the president will have full authority to use martial law and to use the National Guard to enforce it.
