Cheney On Obama & Executive Power

2 comments December 16th, 2008at 11:29am Posted by Eli

Cheney thinks Obama will want to keep it:

Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday that President-elect Barack Obama will “appreciate” the expansions of executive power achieved during the Bush administration and is unlikely to cede authority back to Congress.

“Once they get here and they’re faced with the same problems we deal with every day, then they will appreciate some of the things we’ve put in place,” Cheney said during an interview on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show.

Translation: “We have fucked everything up so thoroughly that only a dictator could even hope to fix it.”

    “We have fucked everything up so thoroughly that only a dictator could even hope to fix it.”

    which is, unfortunately, true.

    Nobody without divine powers will be able to undo all the damages, repair all the corruption, restore the rights and liberties of USers.

    That’s why I figger Mr.O is a one-termer. Against predictable GOPuke interference, recalcitrance, and bad faith, Mr.O will stand NO chance…They’ll NEVER give him any victories on which to run, and he won’t have the power to seize any.

    Equals: One Term.

    Bush/Palin, ’12

    In fact, they have every incentive to make sure that the country crashes and burns, and I think they will.
