Bush II: Seeking blissful ignorance with demonstrators

Aug 23, 2007 Bush II: Seeking blissful ignorance with demonstrators

Bill of Rights. (From the public domain.)

Thanks to the American Civil Liberties Union for obtaining and releasing the Bush II administration’s heavily redacted manual on how to keep dissenters out of Bush II’s sight when he attends events. The ACLU obtained this manual during litigation (since settled) by a couple who refused to cover their anti-Bush II t-shirts during a July 4 speech by him at the West Virginia Capitol. 

When Bush II leaves the White House for good, will his successor be more enlightened about tolerating dissent and protecting the First Amendment? Jon Katz.

ADDENDUM: Thanks to a fellow listserv member for informing me of this story.
