David Brooks: what the hell, let's just make the President into a dictator

Some wonderful snippets from a less-on* argument:
It’s a good idea to be tolerant of executive branch power grabs and to give agencies flexibility. ---This is a good moment to advocate greater executive branch power because we’ve just seen a monumental example of executive branch incompetence: the botched Obamacare rollout. ---Executive branch officials are more sheltered from the interest groups than Congressional officials.---Executive branch officials, if they were liberated from rigid Congressional strictures, would have more discretion to respond to their screw-ups, like the Obamacare implementation. 
Yeah, with more power after 9/11, imagine what Dubya could have done with the Patriot Act, or how many wedding-party-goers the Obama administration could murder without fear of negative reaction.

*Less-on:  the state of idiocy in which you'd have to be twice as smart to be a moron.
