John Yoo on the Intent of the Framers:
In a New York Times op-ed defending the Bush Administration's approach to Executive Power, John Yoo makes the following claim:
[T]he founders intended that wrongheaded or obsolete legislation and judicial decisions would be checked by presidential action, just as executive overreaching is to be checked by the courts and Congress.Any ideas as to what historical evidence supports this claim?
