  •  I thought the same thing. (3+ / 0-)

    The first time I noticed it was with Bill Clinton, where the righties were speculating that he'd declare a national emergency or something in order to stay in the white house.  And then lefties did it with GWB.  It's going to happen any time  a president of either party wins a second term.

    •  I didn't remember that talk aound GWB (0+ / 0-)

      but i wasn't on Kos then.

      That said, GWB had suspended civil liberties after 9/11 and had grabbed power for the executive branch so maybe there was a (small, shaky) reason for fear.

      Clinton? it was peacetime, there was no reason whatsoever to think he'd cling to power.

      I don't recall anyone thinking that of GHWBush, for example. Or Reagan. Or Carter. But we didn't have the internet then.
