There is a Quote thats said,""Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
The democrats quickly adopt this position when they're in control of the government.
This latent tentency of the democrats to dominate lays dormant awaiting until the democrats become a majority in office then this trait of the democrat party comes out in full bloom as was confirmed when the democrats held the presidency, the Senate and the Congress.
Never mind that the democrats before they were in complete charge as a results of their having obtained control of govenment had always proclaimed that both parties had to work together in order to get the people's business done, bi-partisanship was then the democrat's creed.
That philosophy the democrats touted so loudly of bi-partisanship though was quickly dispatched with by the democats once they have the levers of office completely in their hands then the authority of "absolute power" reared its ugly head and continues today because of the prerogatives of Obama as the democrat's president.
Barack Obama has demonstrated also that he too is a believer in the democrat parties philosophy which is, when in position of "absolute power" use it, never mind that bi-partisanship bull crap.
....Once in office usurp absolute power...
