Michael Moore loves the notion of Obama as absolute ruler

Michael Moore, that Millionaire Champion Of The Working Class, appears to believe that We The People have granted President Obama dictatorial powers. And, he thinks it's a beautiful thing.
Nothing like it has ever happened. The President of the United States, the elected representative of the people, has just told the head of General Motors -- a company that's spent more years at #1 on the Fortune 500 list than anyone else -- "You're fired!"
I simply can't believe it. This stunning, unprecedented action has left me speechless for the past two days. I keep saying, "Did Obama really fire the chairman of General Motors? The wealthiest and most powerful corporation of the 20th century? Can he do that? Really? Well, damn! What else can he do?!"
This bold move has sent the heads of corporate America spinning and spewing pea soup. Obama has issued this edict: The government of, by, and for the people is in charge here, not big business. John McCain got it. On the floor of the Senate he asked, "What does this signal send to other corporations and financial institutions about whether the federal government will fire them as well?" Senator Bob Corker said it "should send a chill through all Americans who believe in free enterprise." The stock market plunged as the masters of the universe asked themselves, "Am I next?" And they whispered to each other, "What are we going to do about this Obama?"
Not much, fellows. He has the massive will of the American people behind him -- and he has been granted permission by us to do what he sees fit. If you liked this week's all-net 3-pointer, stay tuned.
Having a dictator is kind of cool, as long as he keeps dictating in the way consistent with your agenda.

But, Mr. Moore, you do not have the president on a leash, and one of these days Obama, citing that "massive will of the American people", will do something that you don't like. Then, living under a dictator won't be so wonderful. So be careful what you wish for.
