I never did get how a "signing statement" (which probably doesn't even exist, legally) can amount to a veto of a simultaneously signed bill. Even if it's W who did it.

And I never did like the idea that any law a president deems "sensitive" can be freely violated. I thought the historical incidents of that, such as the WWII internments of citizens based on ancestry, were shameful examples that we were supposed to heed. Plus, what if we all try the "sensitive" argument in our own criminal trial for violating a statute?
