American Caesar

They said after Bush left office we'd discover that the USA was becoming a fascist state. And they were right!

Amid reports of ACORN and union enforcers roughing up ObamaCare critics at town hall meetings, Instapundit highlights this observation at National Review Online:

American Caesar

Kathryn Jean Lopez, August 07, 2009

Yesterday, at a rally for R. Creigh Deeds in Virginia, President Obama said: "I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking."

For Barack Obama, democracy appears to be a distraction. He really does seem to view himself as a Caesar.

Shortly after taking office, Obama held a meeting with governors. At the time, one person in the room relayed Obama's request that critics and skeptics of the stimulus plan keep their concerns to themselves. Just let me do it, was his attitude. He got pushback and he wasn't happy. He wanted democratically elected state governors to shut up so he could do as he pleased. He knows better and we should respect that, seems to be the attitude.

And if you disagree, you'll have Rahm to deal with.


Wonder what color shirt the White House will pick for their thugs' uniforms. Brown is already taken.

Update: "Obama wants the majority that opposes or questions his policies to stay silent."
