The problem, as I see it, is that Obama has never heard the words, "no", "that's a bad idea", or "what the hell were you thinking?". He's always been surrounded by those who agree with him, regardless of how dumb or destructive his ideas are. So, he really does believe he is always right and those that don't agree are enemies. A little Nixonian to me?

You could learn alot about history by reading economic and world political information from 1944 up through 1975. It might even enlighten you as to what happened in America and the world during this tri decade of trouble. Obama is exactly the oposite of Nixon, a better fit is LBJ....

Being president was always easy for Barack Obama.

But delivering on the big words has been considerably tougher.

Obama’s big troubles stem from the rigidity of the left’s broken ideas. They admit of no compromise. Consequently, Obama has subsumed his whole personality into an unworkable progressive ideology that was dead outside of academia- and news rooms- until he resurrected it.

It’s the idea that a benign government of technocrats and academics can engineer near perfect justice at the trivial cost in liberty and money to us.

Yes; maybe they just are that dumb to think it could work.
