This is going to be a quickie. There can be no argument whatsoever against the truism that if Barack Obama had come out with a statement that he had "absolute power" in any sense on any matter, republicans would have had articles of impeachment voted out of the House within the hour. But to have that same standard for the mini-Mussolini they have in the WH right now--well, that will never happen ever. Republicans have no care or regard for our system of laws and customs. They are prepared to burn this country's institutions and traditions to the ground to retain power. They are fascists and there's no two ways about it.
