Default Is President Obama becoming a dictator?

Dick Morris believes that President Obama is making himself into a dictator, to the greatest extent that he possibly can. If so, this is more than a mere "imperial presidency." Much more.

Here is a little from a recent article by Morris:

"With two presidential signatures- one on New Year's Day and the other issued last week - President Barack Obama has assumed the right to assert dictatorial powers over almost all aspects of the U.S. economy and to hold American citizens indefinitely without trial!

"(This is not some 'Space Aliens Invade' story. It is really happening).

"On New Year's Day, Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to fund the Pentagon. But smuggled into its language is an explicit authority 'allowing him to indefinitely detain [US] citizens' according to Jonathan Turley writing in the U.K. Guardian newspaper.

"While the story was buried in the American media, Turley notes that it is 'one of the greatest rollbacks of civil liberties' in American history."

And here is a link to the entire article: http://sz0174.ev.mail.comcast.net/zi...=1&action=view

Absolutely not!!!...

That comes AFTER re-election, when he doesn't have to pretend to give a sh*t about the voters anymore...

Remember when some folks on the left tried to compare Bush to a dictator?

This is not fighting fire with fire, this is fighting stupid with stupid.

Out of libraries. Knowledge of history informs educated people that it is not particularly rare for socialistic presidents to engage in despotic practices. Uniformed people will be consumed with Kardashian's flour crisis.

Going to a public library to use the computer to watch Alex Jones "documentaries" doesn't count as acquiring knowledge.

When I talk about history and historical examples, I can generally back them up.

This is entertaining, just to let you know.
