    Of course, you can over-apply due process as well. Terrorists, especially foreign ones, are enemy combatants and as such not entitled to due process. The issue comes down to the judgment of the person whose finger is not the trigger. Unfortunately, I would not trust the Obamanation to change a light bulb much less anything any more complicated.

    And where and when did this attitude start…… (showing my age) wasn’t it Nixon who started the idea if the President does it (whatever “it” is) then it’s legal? But frankly, power tends to protect itself whoever is using it at the time.

    Nothing new here.

    Someone did promise transparency, which was a bad idea.

    Governments are never transparent, except in a negative way.

    You can trace it back to Nixon, FDR, or even Lincoln. It doesn’t matter where it started, the presidential power grab should be reversed.

    I like it better when both parties are hated equally. This blame everything on the President approach is annoying – almost as annoying as those who claim that all the problems of the country are because of a single political party. Everyone knows it’s the fault of two political parties. Mr. Stantis, please illustrate the similarities between the parties and how hopeless things are because of the similarities.

    Good point, CR; now, if Congress would do its job intelligently, that would automatically limit the power of the presidency. Don’t hold your breath, though.
