I had forgotten about this. A great, or for that matter a good president does not use his office or its trappings to punish those he perceives to have slighted him.
If Obama is unable to control himself, and instead lets his self-absorbed ego get in the way then he's really weak.
He goes around and trashes his opponents, and not just those in the public eye. He calls them "hostage takers", he uses the power of his office to punish states i.e., South Carolina that are of no use to him to reward his political cronies.
Can you imagine GWB doing something like this to Pelosi, Reid, or Hillary Clinton? These people said some pretty unflattering things about W, but he never castigated them in a personal way, and in public. I'm sure he didn't do it in private either.
It would almost be funny, if it didn't say so much about a man who seems to be unable to put aside differences, and instead seeks to use the power of his office, and the treasury of the US taxpayer to harm his enemies.
Obama is the perfect example of the mischief created by vanity at work on a weak mind.
