It's all about precedence...

Whether his decrees were good or bad is irrelevent. What is the problem is the precedence this grab of power has for future Egyptian presidents. Morsi may not abuse this power, but that doesn't mean a future president won't.

That's what is so frightening to me about the precedences Obama is setting with the NDAA, Patriot Act, and Presidential Orders. Obama may not abuse them, the next president may not, but it is setting the stage for a unscrupulous future President to seize power.
