As was revealed in a breathtaking New York Times opinion piece today, many of Barack Obama's top advisers feel alienated from him. There is a sense within the White House that President Obama's theory of government is that "he is the government". Apparently, President Obama has personalized the presidency to such an extent that it is now seen as more about the man than about the position. Certainly that is not how the American Founding Fathers viewed the presidency.

Yes. We know.
Sounds a lot like Hitler.

Can there be any doubt that he views himself as a dictator?
And the clueless Legislative branch and the absolutely worthless Judicial branch are letting El Bozo rule like a king over a bunch of peasants. Thousands of brave Americans have died on battle fields all over the world to keep our freedoms, and these lazy, unprincipled doofuses are letting a small cadre of Marxists hatched at our Leftist universities take over our economy and our country.

God help us all.
This isn’t a presidential administration. It’s a personality cult.
Oh, Jeez, doncha worry, we got them Constitutional checks und balances!
This topic is going get more interesting by the day.
I cannot wait until this, this “thing” tries to shut down a newspaper. I know, it is unlikely, since the publishers adore him, but one may fall a bit out of line pursuing a story along these lines.
Much of our Bill of Rights was written with this particular tyrant ~ the King of France ~ in mind!
Obama clearly thinks of himself as constituting the same sort of personage.
Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer...history repeats itself.
The founding fathers found cause to dispute their dictator.
Do we have the will to reestablish the constitutional republic they gave to us?
sic semper tyrannis
