Does Obama want to become America’s dictator? It seems so. In his recent Disaster of the Disunion speech, which apparently was written by Bush’s speechwriter at the Council on Foreign relations, there is an obscure reference to more power for Obama.
According to Mr Soetoro,
Some of what\’s broken has to do with the way Congress does its business these days. A simple majority is no longer enough to get anything — even routine business — passed through the Senate.

Of course, this is not the first time that an American president has openly expressed his belief that America needs a dictator. CFR member George W. Bush said at least three times that he would like to become a dictator. In 1998, talking about what it was like to be the governor of Texas he said: “You don\’t get everything you want. A dictatorship would be a lot easier.” 
In 2000, Bush joked: “If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I\’m the dictator.” But, a year later, Bush repeated, now very seriously, “A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there\’s no question about it.”
Not surprisingly, some members of Congress are delighted with the idea. Last year, Republican Senator Mitch McConnell shamelessly proposed a drastic solution to the administration’s insistence that the country’s debt ceiling be raised against the wishes of many congressmen. According to McConnell, the power of the purse, an authority clearly invested in Congress according to the U.S. Constitution, should be handed over to the President.
The idea, however, that the U.S. needs an Emperor, not a President, is much older.
A long time ago, the CFR conspirators realized that it would be much……………….
