Hastert on Checks and Balances

"The Founding Fathers were very careful to establish in the Constitution a Separation of Powers to protect Americans against the tyranny of any one branch of government. They were particularly concerned about limiting the power of the Executive Branch." - Dennis Hastert

I have a very good feeling that when the founding fathers envisioned the legislative branch limiting the power of the executive branch, it looked pretty much the opposite of how Mr. Hastert's Congress has been acting.

The fact that these guys can say these things with a straight face is impressive.
