    Obama is a dictator. The United States does not have three branches of government.

    Unilateral. Laws by decree. These are the standard operating procedures of a dictator. I'm not just suggesting that we elect someone new in 2012, I'm demanding that he be prosecuted for crimes against the United States. The office of president was never intended to be a dictatorship, but that's what we have now.

    Not a fan of Obama or hoe things have gone since he's been in the White House, but to call him a dictator smacks of demagoguery. He's done nothing worse than any president, Democrat or Republican, since Grover Cleveland (the last president who truly stayed within the Constitution).

  6. Yeah, if the president were a dictator, we'd have a LOT more wonkiness than we already have. Gitmo would be closed with some of its residents parked in a federal prison somewhere, taxes on high income earners would already be higher, etc, etc, etc.

    See Obameter for list of the status of various campaign promises. Obviously, if he were a "dictator", that list would contain a lot fewer "broken" promises.

    Our prior five or six presidents were also notorious for this. Just see Bush's warrantless wiretapping, "Rendition" policy, (which was originated by Clinton, but not used until Bush,) EVERY president's use of recess appointments, etc, etc, etc...

    ok. so you think he is not a dictator?

    TSA agents are doing random stops and check point 18 miles from each state.
    TSA agents on airplanes, buses and train terminals.

    some blogs have been terminated due to persidential orders....hmmm.

    obama is the only president that has asked your fellow americas to reports on other americas.

    When he ran for office he stated his administration would be open and up front. If this is his definition of an open and up front administration, I would hate to see what is going on behind closed doors. Maybe he meant compared to Chicago politics his administration would be open and up front.

    Nope, he was/still is so inexperienced in Government that he thought Chicago Politics DEFINED open and up front!

    Moral of the story, never hire a community organizer to do a REAL job.

    Which part of "... shall NOT be infringed..." confuses you?

    Dictator is one of those many terms that ends up having a variety of meanings, like paying your "Fair share" in taxes. By his track record and upbringing, Obama is expanding the power of the executive branch of government as he sees fit, and likes to expand the powers of the other branches because he thinks bigger is better. I'm not saying I agree with him, but there are no regulations on things like cabinet size and "Tsars." Can it be said that he is working around the Constitution? Some people accuse Lincoln of expanding executive power too, although that was during wartime. I would say that keeping these issues in context can be helpful, but that still won't please everyone.

    Now if Obama does not allow us to vote him out in 2012, then we will have a clear cut dictator definition that can't be refuted!
