"People who lack character become tyrants when they have more power than they should"

Horn­blower bowed, but as the Colonel remained unbend­ing he stiff­ened to atten­tion. He could rec­og­nize that type of man at once — the ser­vant of a tyrant, and in close per­sonal asso­ci­a­tion with him, mod­el­ing his con­duct not on the tyrant’s but on what he fan­cied should be the cor­rect behav­iour of a tyrant, far out-​Heroding Herod.

Jack Sul­li­van: I got news for you son, she already has all the con­trol. And when she’s done with this world she will con­trol the next whichever world that is. Prob­a­bly hell, because she’ll want to be reunited with her family.

One of the things that has got­ten short shift when cri­tiquing the Obama Admin­is­tra­tion has been the dis­as­ter the peo­ple under him have been.

Eliz­a­beth Scalia (whose quote titles this post) brings this up in her piece at the Anchoress say­ing:

In Wash­ing­ton DC, every admin­is­tra­tion brings in a num­ber of new peo­ple — both male and female — who are MCTC (“more con­nected than capa­ble”) and I’ve always thought of J-​Nap as one of them.

We’ve talked about some of those real win­ners Van Jones, Anita Dunn, Kevin Jen­nings at this blog but all of these peo­ple and their rad­i­cal views have been enabled by Obama.

Obama is a rad­i­cal, he was brought up as a rad­i­cal, he was taught as a rad­i­cal, and is the worst type of rad­i­cal, a rad­i­cal with “Chicago Machine Val­ues” under any­thing resem­bling nor­mal cir­cum­stance he would have all the chance of being elected pres­i­dent as Rosanne Barr…

BUT he is a rad­i­cal who car­ries him­self and presents him­self as some­one accept­able to the Amer­i­can peo­ple, and once he got in he brought his ide­o­log­i­cal soul mates, peo­ple who did not feel the need to hide the type of folks they are.

When you look at some of the worst things that have come from this admin­is­tra­tion you don’t have to go far to see the hand of these peo­ple and it is the work of those peo­ple on a lower level that con­tribute the most real world dam­age to Americans.

When Pres­i­dent Obama is replaced in Novem­ber it will be good for the coun­try but just as good if not bet­ter will the sym­bolic clean­ing of the Augean sta­bles that the sweep­ing his rad­i­cal cronies from DC will be.

Hornblower bowed, but as the Colonel remained unbending he stiffened to attention. He could recognize that type of man at once—the servant of a tyrant, and in close personal association with him, modeling his conduct not on the tyrant’s but on what he fancied should be the correct behaviour of a tyrant, far out-Heroding Herod.

Jack Sullivan: I got news for you son, she already has all the control. And when she’s done with this world she will control the next whichever world that is. Probably hell, because she’ll want to be reunited with her family.

One of the things that has gotten short shift when critiquing the Obama Administration has been the disaster the people under him have been.

Elizabeth Scalia (whose quote titles this post) brings this up in her piece at the Anchoress saying:

In Washington DC, every administration brings in a number of new people — both male and female — who are MCTC (“more connected than capable”) and I’ve always thought of J-Nap as one of them.

We’ve talked about some of those real winners Van Jones, Anita Dunn, Kevin Jennings at this blog but all of these people and their radical views have been enabled by Obama.

Obama is a radical, he was brought up as a radical, he was taught as a radical, and is the worst type of radical, a radical with “Chicago Machine Values” under anything resembling normal circumstance he would have all the chance of being elected president as Rosanne Barr…

…BUT he is a radical who carries himself and presents himself as someone acceptable to the American people, and once he got in he brought his ideological soul mates, people who did not feel the need to hide the type of folks they are.

When you look at some of the worst things that have come from this administration you don’t have to go far to see the hand of these people and it is the work of those people on a lower level that contribute the most real world damage to Americans.

When President Obama is replaced in November it will be good for the country but just as good if not better will the symbolic cleaning of the Augean stables that the sweeping his radical cronies from DC will be.
