Here is a video clip from C-SPAN from March 1, where Obama claims he is "not a dictator", but the President:
He continued, "So, ultimately, if Mitch McConnell or John Boehner say that we need to go to catch a plane, I can't have Secret Service block the door way, right?"
The comment was in response to a reporter's question.
Not a dictator? Let's see:
1) www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/dictatorShareDefinition of dictator : A dictator is someone who has absolute power — or who at least behaves as if they do by bossing others around.
a. An absolute ruler.
b. A tyrant; a despot.
2. An ancient Roman magistrate appointed temporarily to deal with an immediate crisis or emergency.
a : a person granted absolute emergency power; especially :one appointed by the senate of ancient Rome
b : one holding complete autocratic controlc : one ruling absolutely and often oppressively
Now does Obama fit any of the characteristics of a dictator? You know, a man who "has absolute power — or who at least behaves as if they do by bossing others around", or one " appointed temporarily to deal with an immediate crisis or emergency"? ........ Nah, not at all, couldn't be - right?
Also notice that the definition states a dictator as a "Roman magistrate". ... Now tell me who really runs things in Washington? And if Obama is a dictator, then he is a Roman Magistrate, working for Rome, and not the U.S. ....... something to think about.
