I would note that whether or not one thinks it likely that Bush will start ordering his political opponents to be not so much put "in jail" as abducted off the streets and then held incommunicado in secret foreign facilities for an indefinite span of time during which they'll be tortured until, eventually, their coerced confessions as used as evidence for never releasing them, the point I would make is that Bush really has asserted his constitutional right to do this and the main opinion leaders on the right have agreed that there should be no meaningful constraint on his ability to behave in this manner.
