If Barack Obama stood at the podium and declared that he had the right to total authority in the midst of a national emergency, the right would bring forth a wave of righteous fury the like of which had never been seen before, and rightfully so.
We would make the argument, very loudly, that our rights don’t come from Obama. They don’t come from any president, nor do they come from government. They come from God, and God is the highest authority, not just in the land, but the entire universe. Obama doesn’t trump God.
