From Those Who Gave You The Bush Presidency

Mark Steyn, whose sense of irony seems to have deserted him:

What is fascinating about the age of Obama, and about what Senator Fulbright was saying, is what I call, “the persistence of the monarchical urge” two and a third centuries after George III was given the boot, there are a lot of people who want a strong, charismatic leader who knows what’s best for you. I don’t. I like citizen legislators, and I don’t regard the president of the United States as “my leader.”
