Emperors Old Clothes

Richard Nixon was accused of trying to impose an imperial presidency. Richard Nixon was a piker compared to President Obama . Nixon only tried to thwart the legislative branch by not spending all the money they approved.. President Obama simply ignores the law. The Defense Of Marriage Act, the Nochild Left Behind, The immigration laws, and it seems anything he can subvert by presidential refusal to carry out the intent of congress. I may be in favor of some of these subversions but I cannot agree that they are legal transgressions. We are supposed to have democracy with laws enacted by a legislature, enforced by an executive not circumvented by the executive through his appointed czars. I worry that the public and press acceding to this activity does not realize that such unfettered power can have dire and and unforseen consequences.
