Wait… What?

Apparently the President isn’t part of the executive branch either:

“The White House said Friday that, like Vice President Dick Cheney’s office, President Bush’s office is exempt from a presidential order requiring government agencies that handle classified national security information to submit to oversight by an independent federal watchdog,” the Los Angeles Times will report Saturday, RAW STORY has learned. Excerpts:

“The executive order that Bush issued in March 2003 covers all government agencies that are part of the executive branch and, although it doesn’t specifically say so, was not meant to apply to the vice president’s office or the president’s office, a White House spokesman said.”

Who knew?

So… if neither Bush nor Cheney are actually in the executive branch, then who has all this accumulation of unitary executive power been for?
