A couple of weeks ago, Obama informed the American public that he's not the "emperor of the United States."
He cited that fact as a problem.
Poor guy. He says he has to struggle with that, not being emperor.
Today, Obama points out that he's not a dictator.
On several occasions, he's acted like one, ignoring the Constitution, stripping Americans of our rights. He's circumvented Congress. He declared the Senate to be in recess, completely disregarding the separation of powers.
Sometimes, Obama is a dictator. He just says he's not.
This could be Obama's "I am not a crook" moment.
Echoes of President Nixon:
OBAMA: I am not a dictator. I'm the president.Obama doth protest too much, methinks.
