This proves that hard lefties want a dear leader dictator-watch the film The Inner Circle with Tom Hulce-it's about the insanity of the soviets and stalin as dear leader-Hulce plays a movie projectionist in the Kremlin and he's a 'true believer' in communism, even after his wife is confiscated by the regime insiders and his life is ruined.

Sen. Ted Cruz says Barack Obama is acting like an "imperial president" and must think he can do "nothing wrong," given his adversarial push to have Congress accept Chuck Hagel as his new defense secretary and extend the nation's debt limit without a fight.
"There's a pattern here . . . which is I think the president has drunk the Kool-Aid," the Texas Republican said Tuesday evening on Fox News' Sean Hannity show. "He was re-elected and at this point he thinks he can do nothing wrong. He went through the fiscal cliff; he got exactly what he wanted in the fiscal cliff.
"And you take the Hagel nomination, for example," Cruz continued. "They floated this trial balloon for several weeks and you saw a number of Republicans come out against it. You saw crickets chirping among [Democratic] senators.
"Typically one floats a trial balloon to get a sense of support. It was clear there was strong bipartisan opposition to Chuck Hagel, and President Obama decided he didn't care. He was going to force it through and pick this fight because I think, politically, he thinks he can pick any fight he wants."
But Cruz, who believes like a number of his GOP colleagues that former Senator Hagel is "on the outer fringe in terms of his views on national security," says he plans to fight hard to defeat Hagel's nomination.
"I respect him personally, but his views are not in the mainstream, and I don't think they'd serve this nation well leading the Department of Defense," said Cruz, acknowledging Hagel's service as a decorated soldier in the Vietnam War.
Cruz, however, indicated he was more concerned about Obama's determined effort to avoid a fight with Congress on the debt limit, which could mean a move to invoke the 14th Amendment's provision on the public debt and simply tell the Treasury to ignore the debt ceiling.
"You know, we saw in the first term the president repeatedly ignore the constraints of the Constitution, ignore the constraints of federal law to implement his agenda, and I think in the second term that's only going to get worse," Cruz told Hannity.
