See a true American patriot in person 

West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd will be in New York City to present his new book at the Union Square Barnes & Noble (33 East 17th Street at Union Square; 212-253-0810) on Monday, July 26 at 12:30pm. (Call the store to confirm details.)

Byrd, of course, spent this past Sunday morning on Meet the Press brandishing a copy of the Constitution and railing against the Bush administration’s corrupt and criminal conduct in the TWAT.

He also recently released the book Losing America: Confronting a Reckless and Arrogant Presidency, in which he writes:

Bush's power has been wielded with arrogance, calculation, and disdain for dissenting views. The Constitution's careful separation of powers has been breached, and its checks and balances circumvented. Behind closed doors, schemes have been hatched, with information denied to the legislative branch and policy makers shielded from informing the people or Congress. In fact, there appears to be little respect for the role of Congress. There is virtually no attempt to build consensus through the hard work of reaching across the aisle to find common ground. Real consultation does not exist.
Plus, unlike George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and John Ashcroft, Byrd renounced his membership in the KKK some 50 years ago.

Come see Robert Byrd, American patriot, in person on Monday, July 26.
