I believe Obama thought he could really manhandle our political machinery in this country. True, he's made a real mess of things, but the Republic is much stronger then one man. The kind of Chavez-change that this guy wants will not be had by a neophyte political hack with dreams of a Marxist reality in these United States. This schmuck really thought he could be king, but American exceptionalism, a large part of our patriotism that this man refuses to recognize, will not allow this to happen. This is where Obama overplayed his worn out "vision" for a socialist United States.
