Liberal Daily Kos diarist calls for 'benevolent' Obama dictatorship
The Examiner ^ | November 9, 2012 | Joe Newby

Posted on 11/11/2012 10:20:36 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

In a diary posted Thursday at the left wing Daily Kos, Michael Alton Gottlieb called for Obama to rule the country as a "benevolent" dictator.

"The American Presidency is a de facto dictatorship," he wrote.

According to Gottlieb, the president "has unprecedented power of Fiat" and "literally has the power of life and death over every citizen in the nation."

So, in Gottlieb's view, the president should use that power for "good."

Echoing Michael Moore, Gottlieb says Obama should "lock up the bankers," without giving any reason why. Apparently, the fact that they work in a bank is reason enough for them to be stripped of their right to due process and tossed in jail.

"Reform the system. Forgive the debt. Reboot," he added. Unfortunately, the economy doesn't work that way, but it probably sounded good to Gottlieb at the time he wrote it.

He also called for Obama to unilaterally declare a national emergency, but doesn't say exactly why. He says America should "bring the troops home and the military-industrial-complex to heel."

Gottlieb seems to have forgotten the Executive Order signed by Obama that would spell out what could happen in such a declared national emergency. The order, signed in March, would effectively nationalize everything, including food, water and U.S. citizens...

By re-electing him you’ve already made him a dictator. Good luck making him be benevolent.

I like the idea. Particularly the "Reboot."

My "reboot" would include some shooting, but nothing Stalin would condemn... Stalin slaughtered 20,000,000, so perhaps Stalin wouldn't be a good metric, but it is one the Dims would understand. After all, 1 death is a tragedy, 1 million is a statistic.

benevolent...BENEVOLENT...

This is why socialism and marxism and all that dreamy bunch of dung doesn’t work. People who get power like that are never benevolent. It is a dam* fairy tale and I am tired of that frickin’ tale! Move to North Korea if that is how you want to live!

What imbeciles these slavish Obamatons are! Ass-clowns.

Their demigod is a defacto employee of the Banks, an amazing reality about which they are clearly blind.

Here in the U.S., the people elected Barack Obama in 2008 on the implicit promise that the politically dominant financial sector would be limited in some meaningful fashion. Instead, President Obama immediately nixed any meaningful reform.

Many will claim that Obama was stymied by a Republican Congress. But the primary policy framework Obama put in place -- the bailouts --took place during the transition and the immediate months after the election, when Obama had enormous leverage over the Bush administration and then a dominant Democratic Party in Congress.In fact, during the transition itself, Bush’s Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson offered a deal to Barney Frank, to force banks to write down mortgages and stem foreclosures if Barney would speed up the release of TARP money. Paulson demanded, as a condition of the deal, that Obama sign off on it. Barney said fine, but to his surprise, the incoming president vetoed the deal.

Yup, you heard that right-- the Bush administration was willing to write down mortgages in response to Democratic pressure, but it was Obama who said no, we want a foreclosure crisis. And with Neil Barofsky’s book Bailout: An Inside Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street, we see why.

Tim Geithner said, in private meetings, that the foreclosure mitigation programs were not meant to mitigate foreclosures, but to spread out pain for the banks...

. The lefty trouble makers are always the first to be thrown in the Gulag
when their own people come to power.

My opinion of this is because they are the biggest troublemakers and
will demand the power be shared equally. But given the same power
those supporters would do the same and croak supporters just the same.

No dictatorship is ‘’benevolent’’. No dictatorship allows the citizen ownership of a firearm(something Leftists never take into account). In a dictatorship the faithful are usually the first to go to ‘’the wall’’(firing squad) twits like this writer never see that coming. Dictators don't need creative writers offering cheeky critiques of the regime and any writer, actor or popular political figure who might outshine the dictator usually ends up going down ‘’the memory hole’’aka deadTo see that some ignorant, Facist -minded ''writer'' would think this would be a desirable enviornment for America to become shows an ignorance that borders on insult. What a fecking idiot this guy is. We are heading for uncertain times and deep,treacherous waters here. This two-bit Mussolini has shown us what an arrogant, narcissistic and mendacious little bastard he can be in his first term. He is unrestrained now. I'm sorry but I see a bad moon rising.

"Benevolent"? Toward whom? Every dictator is benevolent to his own side, he has to be. Hitler and the Nazis got along just fine. Everyone else, yeah, there was a problem there.

Remember the name, Michael Alton Gottlieb, when it comes time to try the bastards at Nuremberg II.

The natural bent of all leftists is towards fascism. Virtually all political vandals and destroyers of public property are leftists. The people who shout down, thrown things at, and keep from speaking people with opposing views of theirs at universities and other settings are all leftists. So this is no surprise that an Obamaton fervently wishes his master to turn into a new Joe Stalin. Lib/leftists like to whip and be whipped.

This two-bit Mussolini has shown us what an arrogant, narcissistic and mendacious little bastard he can be in his first term.

Did YOU misspell Muslim?

Mussolini was a nice guy compared to a Muslim working for the Islamic terrorists' interests.

For example, you never thought the Arab Spring was about democracy, did you? Arab Spring was about overthrowing governments and putting them into the hands of Muslim terrorists.

Egypt = Muslim Brotherhood = Success!

Libya = Well on way to get terrorists into power

Iraq = US Troops removed, terrorists attacks through the roof

Syria : US supplying weapons through Libya to "rebels."

Rebels : Muslim fanatics including Al Qaeda. In other words, the US (read that Obama) is giving Al Qaeda weapons.

Now do YOU understand Petraeus' affair and being thrown under the bus for a girlfriend or two? Do YOU understand the purpose of Arab Spring? Do you understand WHY homeland security (and others) is buying zillions of rounds for target practice? The purpose of a civilian force, just as well trained, just as well armed as the military....?

The useful idiot liberals think they have their liberal boy when in fact the President is working to enslave or kill them all; and YOU too, if necessary.

This is not a drill, it is a real attack organized by our Arab friends throughout the world. Obama is a modern day Trojan Horse. Are you awake now and do you understand that it is almost time to implement Phase 3?

Ayn Rand was Way ahead of her time.

From the article:

"For my part, I think redistributing wealth from the likes of Murray Energy, prohibiting them from dismissing hard-working producers for reasons of this sort, and preventing them from reducing the standards of living of 163 workers and their dependents is an important part of what it will take to improve our general standard of living and restore our economy."

I couldn’t agree more. Sadly, with exception of maybe Mike Gallagher, Salem Radio’s line up of talkers are mostly GOP-e apologists with Medved and Hewitt being the worst offenders.
