What tells you that they won't try to hoard more power next year? and the year after that? and the year after that? Corrupt people always want more power, and there are many corrupt people running your government.
Anyway, if they want carte blanche, they just have to stage a terrorist attack, like a suitcase nuke in a mid-sized city would be enough.

But he could if he wanted to, and it's not just Bush that you ought to be worried about.
