"America is at a constitutional tipping point. My view is that the president has exceeded his authority in a way that is creating a destabilizing influence in a three branch system. I was critical of Pres. Bush as well, but the rate at which executive power has been concentrated in our system is accelerating. Frankly, I am very alarmed by the implications of that aggregation of power. What also alarms me, however, is that the two other branches appear not just simply passive, but inert in the face of this concentration of authority.” - Jonathan Turley (D) Professor of Law at GWU.
