Funny how when Obama expands the base of Power for the Executive Branch McBear, FTL, and other decidedly left leaning posters are ok with it. However when Bush did the same thing the world was ending and it was a nefarious Darth Vader like conspiracy to take over the country.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
