Rudy Giuliani Apparently Would Expect To Wield Dictatorial Powers As President

Glenn Greenwald – Salon

Over the weekend, it was revealed by National Review’s Ramesh Ponnuru that Rudy Giuliani believes that, as President, he would have the power to imprison American citizens without any sort of review of any kind, and Giuliani stated he hoped to exercise that power only “infrequently” (Mitt Romney said he’d have to convene a team of “smart lawyers” before he could answer). That Giuliani expressly believes that, as President, he can exercise (and apparently intends to exercise, though just “infrequently”) one of the most tyrannical and un-American powers there is received notice only in the blogosphere, but not in any national media outlets.
