Dear Mr. President…

Dear Mr. President… May 21, 2013

When you arrogate to yourself the power to secretly and unilaterally decree the murder of anybody on planet earth you think needs killin’, including American citizens, and when you also arrogate to yourself the kingly power to detain people without charge for time and eternity, you start to get delusional.  And when you start to get delusional, sin makes you stupid and you start thinking you can get away with things.

Only, here’s the thing:  you can’t.  So when your DOJ leaks documents to Smear a Fast & Furious Whistleblower people find out.  And when  you target reporters for intimidation, reporters report on that.  And when the IRS is commanding its victims not to protest at abortion clinics and demanding to know the contents of their prayers(!), people want to know how high up the command chain that goes and whether it’s due to you being a massively incompetent nitwit or a scheming Richard Machiavelli Nixon.

This is, at the very least, a massive and huge failure of oversight of some elementary executive duties.  And that’s the charitable take on this.  If it turns out that we are looking, not at Obama being asleep at the switch, but active coordinating a campaign of intimidation against perceived enemies, impeach him.
