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.
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.
