Character - a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means.
- Emerson, American Poet and Essayist (1803-1882)
There are a lot of similarities between Barack Obama and Richard Nixon, both presidents were loners, extremely thin skinned to criticism, certifiably paranoid and for both, instead of seeing Democracy’s strength being rooted in bringing different viewpoints to an honest debate, both men viewed all who dared raise a dissenting voice againt them as “enemies”.
Here’s one big difference between Nixon and Obama, however – while Nixon only spoke of his dissenters as being “enemies” behind closed doors, Obama’s hatred for people with opposing viewpoints runs so deep, he can’t even contain himself from saying it publically, as he did in calling on his supporters to “punish” their “enemies“.
When Obama calls the American people stupid any time they don’t fall in line or dare to vote against him, we know this man has no respect for the opinions of everyday Americans, but what an insight it gives us into the brain of Barack Obama, that he speaks openly of his desire to punish fellow Americans as enemies!
Is it any wonder then that we now find ourselves where we’re at with the IRS and its widespread abuse of power against any individual or organization who doesn’t think in lockstep with this administration?
If someone ever tries to suggest to you that the IRS targeting of Dear Leader’s “enemies” didn’t start at the top, chew on this fact – there’s not a single member of Obama’s cabinet that he met with more than the IRS commissioner. In fact, it wasn’t even close . . .

To borrow one of Obama’s favorite words, the president’s 157 visits with his IRS commissioner is completely “unprecedented” in the history of the American presidency.
When you think of all the important posts in a president’s cabinet and you see Obama met with his IRS commissioner twice as often as any other member of his cabinet, you have to be completely delusional to imagine the campaign to punish Obama’s enemies didn’t start at the top.
