    governments have looked this simultaneously disfunctional and batshit before...usually when historically unsavory things were about to happen. And this doesn't bode well.

      he'd read that book about Lincoln and the way he worked with his adversaries and taken it a little too seriously.  He does not have the same caliber of people to work with that Lincoln did.
      No matter how they disagreed with him, they knew when to quit for the good of the nation.  (Mostly).
      Obama has no such quality in his adversaries to work with.  They seem determined to destroy democracy itself, and certainly to destroy everything that made this nation "different" from any other.
