Welcome to America Senator Byrd!
If you ask me, I think that Obama's real power grab was something called the "Presidential Election". The the course of one day Obama went from being a senator to the most powerful man in the entire world. If Obama so wanted, then he could destroy any and everything he deemed worthy. Obama's salary jumped to (if it's still this much) $400,000 / year, and even after his term he will be making an even higher amount just by talking.
Byrd where the eff have you been? Even the founding Senators wanted George Washington to say on as King. The President of the United States of America is not a clandestine occupation within the White-House.
