Jon Stewart disappointed Obama not more of a dictator

Jon Stewart disappointed Obama not more of a dictator:

Over in Rolling Stone, Jon Stewart, "the Walter Cronkite of this generation," frets that the president hasn't done more to circumvent the Constitution's separation of powers:

I’m surprised at how much he deferred to the legislative process. He’s accomplished some things, and I’m sure he’s pleased with what he’s done, but I would have preferred to see something a little bit more transformative.

Stewart is in his mid-forties and obviously steeped in pop culture. He must have seen the "How a Bill Becomes Law" episode of "Schoolhouse Rock" a couple of hundred of times by now.

I can only assume the Daily Show writers haven't yet told Stewart that Obama had a filibuster-proof Democratic majority in congress when he took office..........
