Obama’s Imperial Presidency 2.0
By Rob Janicki
Welcome to the real world of Barack Obama. The end of Obama’s first term was contentious, combative and, if I may be so bold, somewhat crazy. Obama’s inauguration speech was just the icing to the cake celebrating his lurching leftward march to his imperial presidency, part two. Obama is now out to satisfy his inner most radical political being. In essence Obama has come out and declared war, not on our enemies, but on the Republican Party.
Obama is, once again, in full campaign mode. Not for himself directly, but to see to it that Democrats win back the House in the 2014 congressional elections. Since Obama does not know how to lead the nation, he falls back on what, admittedly, he is good at and that is campaigning. Obama likes campaigning. Actually, he loves campaigning because he doesn’t have to do something he knows nothing about, which is leading the nation and actually having to do the mundane things such as retail politicking like Bill Clinton and Tip O’Neill of yesteryear and dealing with foreign leaders to preserve America’s presence on the world stage.
