Chavez and Obama: Dictators in Waiting?

CARACAS, Venezuela -- Venezuelan lawmakers granted President Hugo Chavez broad powers Friday to enact laws by decree, undermining the clout of a new congress that takes office next month with a bigger opposition bloc.
"They're accusing me of being a dictator," Chavez said on state television Thursday night, dismissing the criticism as unfounded. "We're building a new democracy here that can't be turned back."

Remember when Barack Obama said this?  Think Executive Orders and regulatory authority now that the House will be run by Republicans.
