Presidents are fun and entertaining. Obama can be called the "Mars Attacks!" president. Listen for when he says things that fit this framework: "The constitution prohibits X. So we must be very careful with our new policy, X, so it does not do extensive harm." He can also be called the "horoscope" president. Any given paragraph can contain two opposing "truths." There's always something you can agree with. (A key feature of the comedy/sci-fi movie, "Mars Attacks!", is the Martians walking around saying, "We come in peace. We want to be your friend. Do not be afraid." All the while blasting anybody in their sights. Naturally, some of the movie's characters - notably the politicians - pay attention only to the Martians' words.)
