Where is our Cincinnatus?

Steve Krason of Franciscan University reminds us that often the President has had to act decisively on domestic policy, sometimes on an "extraconstitutional basis," to defend the fundamental law of the constitution. One example he might have cited was Eisenhower's efforts to enforce desegregation in Arkansas, which helped overcome social inertia and resistance in the South.  Krason is thinking about the overreach of Obamacare and the EPA and other federal agencies bent on reducing basic freedoms.  Still this article will arouse some controversy, as few conservatives see much to like in the presidency these days.
