President Obama: The Dictator Within

As President Obama looks out into the world, all throughout the Middle East citizens of various Arab countries are attempting to unseat their dictators.  These protests are spreading far and wide among a citizenry that has suffered under tyranny.

What makes a dictator just that, what is the definition of a dictator?  From Wikipedia:

The term “dictator” is generally used to describe a leader who holds and/or abuses an extraordinary amount of personal power, especially the power to make laws without effective restraint by a legislative assembly.

The latest news from right here in America about President Obama…

President Obama and his administration continue to be guilty of contempt of court by not acknowledging a judges ruling to drop the offshore drilling ban.  In the face of constantly rising fuel prices and unemployment in the oil business (mostly the fault of President  Obama) President Obama’s administration continues it’s illegal ban.

Even though President Obama and his administration had a  legal set  back, having the signature healthcare law declared unconstitutional, they continue to set up the bureaucracy that will run the Obamacare system.  The judges ruling in this case clearly stated the healthcare law no longer exists, so the Obama administration is again in contempt.  The correct action for the Obama administration would be to appeal the court for a stay on the ruling until the matter gets through the Supreme Court, but Herr Obama need not deal with such trivial things as the law.  He has an agenda to push through and proper legal routs get in the way.

More recently, President Obama unilaterally decided the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutionalso has decided the Justice Department will no longer defend this law.  Why should the law stop President Obama?  The Defense of Marriage Act is an act, not to prevent gay marriage, but to protect states that have a constitutional definition of marriage as between one man and one woman.  Without DOMA states with gay marriage laws would be able to force those without it to recognize the marriage.  This is an affront to the 9th and 10th amendment (states rights), and does not infringe on the 14th amendment (equal protection) because gay marriage is not forbidden in all states.

Consider the Czar’s Obama has hired as well.  People who answer to nobody but Obama himself.  There are 32 Czar’s under Obama (one is a Mid-East Peace Czar, maybe we should withhold his paycheck), and their salaries are not public knowledge.  These czars set up policies affecting our everyday lives and they are unaccountable.

Going back to the definition of a dictator, where would President Obama fall?
