The president passed a decree earlier this week granting himself extensive new powers.

It includes a bar on any court dissolving the constituent assembly, which is drawing up a new constitution.

Thursday's decree has sparked angry demonstrations, with attacks on offices of Mr Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood party.

The president has said he is acting to protect the revolution.

1. Meet the new boss...

Hopefully, him and everyone like him will get Qaddafi'd until they get it.

2. If there is a revolution, there will be one led by the military, not the people.

And we'll be back to Square One--and I'm not talking about Tahrir, either...hell, Morsi is tear-gassing people in Tahrir Square for daring to challenge him.

However, the "winners" will be religious minorities and women--who are losers under Morsi's regime.

I had a bad feeling about this guy from the git-go. The MB is not an inclusive bunch.

That's the basis if the Muslim brotherhood.

5. This is supposed to be a temporary measure.

Aimed at emasculating the Mubarek judiciary and getting a new constiution written.

It might be prudent to wait and see what happens before hyperventilating.

9. A platitude cannot replace facts.

The poster merely asked that we wait for some before judgement.

8. If he only uses it to protect the constituent assembly, is this a bad thing?

The Mubarak state judges could invalidate everything that has occurred in the last two years.
