Alito Defines Law

WaPo's transcript, Day 2, during an exchange with Graham:

You say that the president has to follow every statute on the books unless the statute allows an exception for the president. Is that a fair statement? Just being president, you can't set aside the law.

ALITO: The president has to follow the law, and that means the Constitution and the laws that are enacted consistent with the Constitution.

I like Alito. He's scrappy and persistent when people try to fiddle with the meanings of words. I'm very happy with this nominee, although I'm sure I'll disapprove of a lot of his rulings. He's got backbone, and the court is going to need it.
