Separation of Power

The Republicans are setting precedents for the future of the American Presidency that they won't want to live with should they every get back in the Oval Office.  They have laid the ground work for the marginalizing of the executive branch with their unbridled hatred and disrespect for the sitting president.  I believe this will rebound on the office itself and materially damage the effectiveness of future presidents.  To me it seems that there is an ongoing attempt to undermine the separation of powers where President Obama is concerned by people too incredibly shortsighted to understand that the damage they do today will outlast the president's tenure.  I have long believed that a chronically destructive and deadly myopia attends the addiction to power and politics in the same way that a chronically destructive and deadly erosion of mind and body attends the addiction to alcohol and  drugs.
