Obama, the imperial president that Nixon wanted to be

Must read blockbuster editorial in USA Today by Jonathan Turley, a liberal law expert, frequent pundit on mass media TV, the Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University.

“From unilateral military actions to warrantless surveillance that were key parts of the basis for Nixon’s impending impeachment, the painful fact is that Barack Obama is the president that Nixon always wanted to be. Four decades ago, Nixon was halted in his determined effort to create an “imperial presidency” with unilateral powers and privileges. In 2013, Obama wields those very same powers openly and without serious opposition.”
