Asked Friday (3/1/2013) by CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin why President Obama can't simply refuse to let congressional leaders leave a room until they reach a deficit-reduction agreement, the president said he can't "force Congress to do the right thing...Jessica, I am not a dictator, I'm the president," he said
Michelle Obama reminded Oprah that Barack was not a 'Dictator' when her and Barack was interviewed by Oprah.
In ancient Rome during times of great exigency or imminent danger, it was customary for the Romans to appoint what they termed a 'Dictator' for a period of six Months. This 'Dictator' was a supreme executive who was given absolute and unlimited powers to save the state from the threat.
The powers of a Roman 'Dictator' were infinite, but only for six months and under very well defined conditions - not at all like what we call a dictator today.
This is the second time that I can recall that Obama has stated that he is NOT a dictator, which means a 'Dictatorship' is something that is on his mind or is being talked about in his presence.
What Obama and sycophants would like to see is a 'Roman Type Dictatorship' for the period remaining in his Presidency.
Not only has Barack Obama said at least twice that he is NOT a Dictator, he also said at least once that he is NOT Emperor of the United States.

"This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency," said Obama. "The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed."
We must remember that Obama is a lawyer, which makes him a 'Wordsmith' (One who uses words skillfully.).
Emperor = The sovereign or supreme ruler of an empire: a title of dignity conventionally superior to that of king.
Notice how Obama states that a "Problem" he has "Struggled" with throughout his Presidency - is that he is ONLY the President and NOT the Emperor of the United States.
President Obama, like many leftist constitutional law professors, seems to have studied the Constitution for the same reasons a professional burglar studies locks and safes.
