Liberals want Obama to be a king, not a president. Do you think Obama wanted to be King?
New York (CNN) -- Can liberals ever be happy? I keep
asking myself this question as I hear an increasing number complaining
about President Obama.
There seems to be a Greek
chorus of liberal whining: "I'm disappointed by him." "I expected
more." "I thought he would be different."
Earlier this week, singer Jackson Browne,
a vocal 2008 Obama supporter, lamented that President Obama is "...just
as beholden to the people who put him in office as any of the
Republicans would be."
What's clear is that the
liberals speaking out don't want a president, they want a king. Albeit a
liberal king -- but still a king, who would be unrestrained by Congress
as well as the checks and balances enshrined in our Constitution.
liberals apparently wanted Obama -- upon taking office -- to have
instantly transformed every campaign promise into law by the simple wave
of a pen. Or maybe they would have preferred Obama to have walked out
onto a White House balcony where, in a scene reminiscent of the musical
"Evita," he would be greeted by adoring throngs waiting below, and on
the spot, declare that all his ideas were now the law of the land.
