Krugman agrees with Friedman: Dictatorial powers would be great!

Paul Krugman:
Progressives are desperately in need of leadership; more specifically, House Democrats need to be told to pass the Senate bill, which isn’t what they wanted but is vastly better than nothing...
It's funny, but I would have sworn that, not all that long ago, we were supposed to be offended and outraged at the exercise of Presidential power. People were up in arms at the idea that President Bush considered himself the head of a unitary executive branch, but apparently with Obama in the White House, there's no reason for the President not to be ordering Congress around, too.

And what does it say about the New York Times that its columnists are so gung-ho for authoritarianism in the pursuit of progressivism?
