“I am not a dictator”

Time was when our presidents were proud to be part of the Constitutional system, limited by checks and balances. George Washington turned aside an effort to make him king. Thomas Jefferson famously was wracked with guilt for carrying out the Louisiana Purchase without clear Constitutional authorization.

But those times seem to be past. Today our president laments that he is not a dictator, and laments that the can’t overcome our separation of powers using mind control (a “jedi mind-meld”).
