Unfortunately precedent was set under Bush

Regarding executive power overriding the Constitution with the torture memos. Which makes Obama untouchable unless the Supreme court rules against Bush retroactively, which will never happen.

Now a government bureaucrat can push a button and you're dead - killed by a machine. The ultimate government control.

Notice when this memo was leaked? The day after the Superbowl. Some 'leak'.
