Hitler-Bush: What a Man's Gotta Do

Here's today's historical parallel; see if the term "unitary executive" sounds appropriate...

Hitler addressed the Reichstag on July 13,
1934: "If anyone reproaches me and asks why we did not
call upon the regular courts for sentencing, my only
answer is this: in that hour, I was responsible for
the fate of the German nation and was thus the Supreme
Justiciar of the German people."

—From Richard J. Evans,
The Third Reich in Power.
