I took this as referring to corporate interests.  In what way has President Obama's power grown to the point that it is stronger than democracy?  He is still subject to term limits and in danger of being voted out of office in November, is he not?  IMO, corporate interests are so strong that it doesn't matter what the electorate thinks, their interests will still be protected through corrupt politicians.

I know this quote was geared towards corporate interests.  But, you can just as easily apply it to Obama.  He thinks his powers are above the branches, and what he has been doing is so un-constitutional he needs to be impeached.  He should not even be given the opportunity to run again IMO.  It's not the corporations that worry me.
