Bush to cancel 2008 election - Sources

Reports are emerging that President George W Bush is planning an audacious move to prolong his presidency by cancelling the election scheduled for November 2008. Author Harvey Wasserman says it's time to think the unthinkable. "It's extremely likely in my view that this administration will strike Iran from the air, declare a national emergency, and cancel the '08 elections," Wasserman said yesterday. "Bush is just like Hitler. It will be a fourth Reich. There is a medium probability that the Bush/Cheney/Rove gang will stage a dictatorial coup. They've done it before. They've certainly thought about doing it before. Cheney's mentor, President Nixon would have definitely cancelled the 1976 presidential election if he hadn't resigned first. It's not out of the question. These neo-cons can do anything they want. At the very least we cannot ignore the possibility. Look, it's sort of speculative," he added.
