Obama has now on several occasions bemoaned the fact that he is not a dictator. Poor darling. I thought he would have figured out that the Constitution places serious limitations on the power of the President of the United States during the years he was posing as the President of the Harvard Law Review, or when he was posturing as the Brilliant Constitutional Professor. Didn't all that role-playing afford him some passing acquaintance with the basic setup of our government?
For someone who was going to make inanimate and admittedly large physical features of the planet obey his will, and rather than simply causing Lazarus to rise from the dead, was going to heal the entire planet, it does seem a little petty, even petulant, for him to now admit that he can't bend Bubbling Boehner to his demands.
Honestly, what kind of messianic majesty is he wielding if the spineless blubbering Republicans in one branch of government can handily thwart his unquestioned powers of diplomacy? Worst Messiah EVAH!
Emperor Obama. It has a sort of dull, tin-pot ring to it, don't you think?
All joking aside, I find it chilling that a president of the United States would repeatedly decry the fact that he doesn't have more power. He never EVER concedes that working with the Republicans in true bipartisanship should be an option. His only answer to the breakdown of any negotiations with the very government he is supposed to be leading is that he doesn't have more power. Honestly - HOLY CRAP!
This isn't just arrogant. It isn't just intellectually rigid. It isn't just dishonest and manipulative. It is dangerous.
Someone who is always whining about not having more power really, really, REALLY wants more power. What he does not want, is not even interested in, is getting along with anyone who has different ideas.
And the left called Bush a psychopath.
