Obama wants more power.

As the fiscal cliff approaches, this is Obama’s grand solution: “a demand for new stimulus spending and authority to unilaterally raise the U.S. borrowing ceiling.”  In other words, Obama wants a new unilateral presidential power to raise the U.S. debt limit.

Obama is too predictable: He’s already announced that he doesn’t care about the Constitution’s separation of powers. If Congress refuses to do something, Obama will just do it himself.
