[avwkaxre] Predicting Obama martial law

When Obama was elected in 2008, the fringe right predicted he would declare himself dictator-for-life, refusing to step down at the end of his term, destroying the American democracy.

With Trump elected, the fringe left, or perhaps even the mainstream left, would prefer Obama do exactly that (perhaps holding new elections with Trump and Trump clones made ineligible, perhaps through assassination).

In 2008, did the fringe right make a prediction as to how a large number of Americans would come to support, or at least stand idly by, democracy hypothetically being destroyed?  Were they correct in the predicted mechanism by which they would become convinced?
