24. No one is trustworthy enough to implement such a law and if by chance there is such a person
The person that replaces them or the one after that absolutely won't be.

I don't get how a law that gave Bush too much power, or would give Romney, McCain, Christie, or Rick Perry to much power can be viewed as tolerable because a Democrat is office because even if you are correct in this instance does not mean you will continue to be correct with subsequent administration still implementing the law.
The law that you can go along with now will only become standard going forward to be abuse by the next Bush/Cheney types to come down the line and they will have such authority as a starting place
Personally, I don't trust flesh and blood with such power and couldn't give a damn what party is in office. Especially a country that folks like Reagan, Bush, McCain, and even Palin have a puncher's chance every four years and sometime make it into office in the era of the dysfunctional Congress.

You trust Barack Obama, Holder, and the rest with such authority and I don't but since neither of us trusts say Boehner (third in line) with such powers then the only sane call is not to give the government the power and the precedent. I don't get what is not simple about this, administrations are very temporary but laws like this are hard to repeal and get harder to repeal with each day they are on the books and are easy to expand on.

Your first loyalty must be the people, then the law, people and parties don't mean much.
