      •  He is our (3+ / 0-)

        Emperor, illegitimately elected.

        When he didn't like the election laws he strongarmed the City Council into changing them  (shame on them), which is one reason why I'm not holding my breath waiting for any pushback from them. They may not like him, but they fear him.

        And if he thinks he will have spent 12 years building himself a platform from which to run for President, he's even more out of touch with reality than I thought.
