Amazon is Obama's Mistress

This is a ridiculous editorial. The problem is that Apple and the big publishers are charging too much for their books, and this was retaliation against Amazon being competitive by offering books below cost (a practice that works fine for regular books, but ebooks are somehow 'exempt' from this model).

President Obama has a mistress. Her name is Amazon. Whereas former Presidents Kennedy and Clinton rendezvoused with female interns, Obama rendezvous with an e-commerce company.

Amazon currently monopolizes e-book sales, controlling 60 percent of the market. And, like a jealous lover, Obama is suing Amazon’s competitors in order to further strengthen her e-book monopoly. Obama may be faithful to his wife, but he is breaking his vow to the American people to defend the Constitution. He is openly abusing his executive powers and giving preferential treatment to Amazon—hoping to curry favor with consumers and ensure his reelection in November.
