Google "Obama dictator." Best to prepare yourself before this endeavor --some may use prayer, I prefer tequila. Why? Your screen will be filled with page after page of some deeply vicious and demented bullshit. Since every one who believes this crap has long- term memory loss, let me refresh their faulty memory chips. Presidential power has been a contentious issue for a long-time.
In the early '60s, Schlesinger wrote about the Imperial Presidency. When have presidents acted "imperially?" To steal a sweet line from Browning "Let me count [just a few of] the ways."
Abraham Lincoln (1863) --Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order
Teddy Roosevelt (1903) -- Columbia wouldn't sell us area for Panama Canal so TR supported Panamanian rebels in gaining independence from Columbia and giving us control of the canal.
Truman and Korean War -- under guise of supporting UN
JFK and "regime change" in Vietnam -- under the rubric of crass imperialism
Nixon invading Cambodia
George H.W Bush invading Panama
Reagan invading Grenada and bombing Libya--plus IranGate
Clinton and our involvement in Somalia and Kosovo
George W and numerous "signing statements" that turned Congressional intent on its head.
Obama has used the powers granted under Bush "to combat terror whenever, however, and whoever---which means drones galore in Afghanistan, then Syria, Somalia, etc.
I could go on, but why?
BUT, let's get real. For US interest groups, the real problem with Obama's imperial tendencies is his desire to reduce gun violence and do some crap that is faintly liberal. Uh Oh! Mention guns, and all the freaks come off their medications. Act like you want to help real people, and the Koch brothers recognize you for the commie pinko you truly are.
Tell you what. Spend a bit of time under a real dictator and you will understand how truly silly-assed u are
