Prior to his recent assertion that it is perfectly normal to dispense with the Fourth Amendment and suspend habeas corpus, Romney said he wasn’t up to speed on the law and promised to post an analysis on his website, which he never did.

The law is a “violent and sudden usurpation” of the Constitution of the sort James Madison warned about.
