JONATHAN TURLEY: Well, unfortunately our system is changing, and it's
changing without a debate. Or even a discussion about what we're going
to do in the future when we have a three branch system, a tripartite
system but one branch is so dominant. What's emerging is an imperial
presidency, an uber presidency as I've called it, where the president
can act unilaterally. This is only the latest example of that.
What's troubling is that we have a system that has been stable precisely
because these are limited and shared powers. This president has
indicated that he's just not willing to comply with some of those
aspects. He told Congress he would go it alone and in our system you're
not allowed to go it alone.
