Daniel Henninger shares some observations by way of the Wall Street Journal:
The political left, historically inclined by ideological belief to public policy that is imposed rather than legislated, will support Mr. Obama's expansion of authority. The rest of us should not.
The U.S. has a system of checks and balances. Mr. Obama is rebalancing the system toward a national-leader model that is alien to the American tradition.Mr. Obama promised to fundamentally transformation America. Everyone should realize by now, he wasn't just blowing political smoke. He meant every word of it.
