Bad, bad, bad.  The Founders drafted the Constitution precisely to thwart any concept of a "unified authority" vesting in the executive branch.  It's fascinating - as well as disgusting, maddening, and sad - how badly liberals want to gut the Constitution now because "their guy" is in office and is so incompetent he can't stand up to even a mild political headwind.

If nothing else one would think these liberals would be smart enough to realize just how dangerous the precedents they're setting will be - dangerous to them, that is - because until and unless they manage to do away with elections altogether, they will inevitably end up on the short end of the stick for at least one presidential term, at which point the "unified authority" of the presidency could very well be used to unilaterally wipe the floor with them.

The main flaw in that argument, however, is the assumption that liberals can actually think.

What a farkin' stooge.  Somebody drop a 7 day dose of Miralax into his Shirley Temple and send him on a 10 mile forced march.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

To hear a resounding Sieg Heil! Sieg Heil! coming from the Left should not surprise anyone.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

The two biggest "rentier groups" in American politics are the two political parties.  Take away their power and it would go a long way toward fixing the disfunctional congress.

The only hope for an effective federal government in this day and age is a strong executive branch with a decisive and effective leader.  That is precisely why I am against it.  I am all in favor of the federal government being weak and incompetent, except when it comes to defending the nation.

And people still call DVid Brooks and Kathleen Parker conservatives.
