On July 26, 1920, printed in The Baltimore Evening Sun almost 93 years ago, H. L. Mencken wrote: "As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people.  On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."

Glad to see more people are waking up on this. Our Big Brother is here, and here to stay, until the people have feel it personally. And trust me that say is going soon.
This has been a long time in coming, and has been building for even longer. Ever since FDR, we have had the slow slip down the hill to what is ultimately tyranny. Now, BO is abusing the power like all heck, but he didn't make it. He used what everyone else set up. Executive orders were made by someone else. Patriot Act as well. The government interfering with the economy was FDR. Whoever invented SS can be blamed for the health care. And so on. This isn't new. This is old.

Did the other presidents didn't their powers, not really. They knew better. They knew the public wouldn't let them. BO, though, from the start has been untouchable. Why? Well, media loves him. I think he is a puppet, and his puppetmasters have been making him immune. But in any case, no one, in the public or in the government, will challenge him. And he knows it. So, he took the power that was waiting for him, and ran with it. Now that the AP and other branches of the media were affected, perhaps these people will have a change of heart. But don’t hold your breath, I’m still waiting for the media to ask Obama the hard questions.
Remember when Obama firat got elected and told his adoring, worshiping supporters that his administration was going to be a “transparent” one! Well that promise didn’t last too long, did it!
The frog slowly boils, well, the frog is just about cooked. It isn't starting to boil- its ending. Whatever used to control government corruption is gone now. All three branches had been corrupted long ago, and now we see the fruits of it.
The executive does whatever it wants, the legislative banks the E up, and the judicial covers both branches asses. BO has made a critical error though- too much, too fast. The frog is waking up. It ins't quite dead yet. And this sudden burst of heat is alarming.

Anonymous: I actually think we allowed the camel to get his nose under the tent a long time ago: pre-9/11. But we have allowed it to accelerate at a much faster pace than should ever have happened.

Obama is bringing us to the brink of the point of no return, if we haven't reached it already.
