Bush himself is just one example of a much more widespread problem.

They adopted a constitution, reflecting concepts of [[checks and balances]] and [[separation of powers]] that impressed such later Americans as [[George Washington|Washington]], [[Benjamin Franklin|Franklin]] and other [[US founding fathers|Founding Fathers]]."

    • "Interactive" Constitution": seems to be a bit of a misnomer, as the only interactivity is selecting which part of the constitution you want explained, but is useful in that it does have capsule summaries of the generally accepted meaning of each part of the Constitution as well as some of the significant concepts to which it refers.
