Who Dares Compare Obama To King George?

From (derived from The New York Times):
President Barack Obama has quietly decided to bypass Congress and allow the indefinite detention of terrorist suspects without charges.
Rather than seek approval from Congress to hold some 50 Guantanamo detainees indefinitely, the administration has decided that it has the authority to hold the prisoners under broad-ranging legislation passed in the wake of Sept. 11, 2001. Former President George W. Bush frequently invoked this legislation as the justification for controversial legal actions -- including the NSA's warrantless wiretapping program.
