Gore: Resist Bush’s ‘excessive power grab’

`Former Vice President Al Gore called on Congress and the public to resist what he called “a gross and excessive power grab” by the Bush administration amid the war on terrorism, declaring that “our Constitution is at risk.”

Gore said the use of the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans without court approval shows that President Bush “has been breaking the law repeatedly and persistently.”

“A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government,” he said.’
