I was going to say how everyone on the left just got out the kneepads and excused away all the Obama administrations unchecked abuse of power with the usual weak-ass litany of excuses (racism! obstructionist GOP! it's the right thing to do!), and then someone comes out and demonstrates my point perfectly.
Checks and balances are there for a reason. And a "Constitutional scholar" like Obama should know more than anyone why the limits exist on the executive office. Not liking them, or having a group opposed to your platforms is not justification enough for abuse of power. There's an island to the south of Florida that demonstrates exactly what kind of system that results in.
Now all the dopes who excused away the years of Obama's Constitutional dismissiveness, due process, civil rights, war powers, etc, are going to get all riled up and righteous when some new idiot has those powers.
