The short answer is, yes. The sort that Nixon could only dream of.
Added to the Commander in Chief’s power grab is Harry Reid’s (D) ending the filibuster in the Senate, and it creates the sort of background in which we slip away from our democratic ideals. Odds are the Republicans will re-gain power some day…and they will run rough shod over us on the basis of Obama’s power grab. For such a smart guy, Obama sure seems short-sighted.
