I'm not emperor....
« on: February 15, 2013, 06:16:20 PM »

how did we get to this point.  we have a president that openly chaffs against the constraints of the constitution and thinks that the problem is that "he's not emperor".  lest you think this is a misstatement, this is not the first one like it.

The word "yet" was likely edited out before publication.
