Too Much Power?

Let me get this straight: the latest attack on the President’s program tells us he is trying to take too much power, becoming a “dictator.”

How soon they forget!

Last year this time, we had a President who had taken to himself authority to arrest even citizens, hold them indefinitely without a trial, torture them, and send them to unidentified foreign prisons.

He had taken the authority to read the e-mail of citizens and listen to their phone calls without any
permission or supervision.

He had sent American troops into a war without justification on the basis of information known to be false.

And because the new President has taken strong action to rescue the economy destroyed by his predecessors policies, he’s taken too much power?

I guess an opposition has to say something, but a tinge of believability would also be useful.
