Liberal Rag: More Despotism Please
Matt Barber Hypocrisy, thy name is liberalism. What a difference a few years makes.

Remember when "progressive" media types chided President George W. Bush till they were blue in the face for "going it alone" on Iraq? Well, apparently "going it alone" is totally cool if you have a "D" after your name.

David Corn, Washington bureau chief over at the uber-liberal Mother Jones is disappointed that an increasingly imperialist Barack Obama wasn't imperialist enough during his recent State of the Union Address. He's furious that our already chestless Commander-in-Hearing-Himself-Talk showed off his bona fides in weakness and "let the Republicans off easy."

Wrote Corn:

"Obama didn't use this opportunity to focus on the reason he has to go it alone: Republicans hell-bent on disrupting the government and thwarting all the initiatives he deems necessary for the good of the nation. Even when he quasi-denounced the government shutdown, he did not name-check House Speaker John Boehner and his tea-party-driven comrades."

What? "All the initiatives" Obama "deems necessary"? "Go it alone"? Yeah, Josef Stalin - affectionately nicknamed "Uncle Joe" by Obama's hero, FDR - had a lot of initiatives he "deemed necessary," too. And like Obama, he also preferred the "go it alone" approach.

Seriously, has Mr. Corn never heard of the separation of powers? The president doesn't get to just unilaterally "deem" laws into effect. He's the chief executive, not the chief lawmaker. Neither should he be the chief lawbreaker.

Yet here we are and so he is.

More than any other president in American history (yes, Nixon included), Obama has done both - make the "law" and break the law. read more
