    "Executive Orders" issued by "the Great Deciderer" that President Obama revokes. Maybe that's why Obama doesn't wear a jacket in the Oval Office...he's there to actually do the job he was elected to do.

      Of course, there really isn't much competition.

      In realpolitik terms though, Obama can set the world on its ear, he can fulfill the Constitutional dream. When you look at the scale of US multinational and military presence in the world, he will have to stop a lot of shit from happening. But the way he is enacting and empowering this, with the moral high ground and a sweeping mandate from the American people, he is unleashing an avalanche which will be much powerful than his presidency.

      It's not that he's idealistic; it's that he fully understands how this has to be to fulfill that dream. He has unleashed this dream to the people of the world, something that will translate and eventually lead to some very uncomfortable questions for the rulers of this world, maybe even himself one day.  

      The truth is we are tortured by the truth.
