This goes back as far as FDR, who, like Obama, was called every name in the book. After winning his first term, he faced vitriolic opposition.
“This is despotism, this is tyranny, this is the annihilation of liberty,” one senator wrote to a colleague. “The ordinary American is thus reduced to the status of a robot. The president has not merely signed the death warrant of capitalism, but has ordained the mutilation of the Constitution, unless the friends of liberty, regardless of party, band themselves together to regain their lost freedom.”
Worse yet, there was a plot to overthrow FDR in the summer of 1933.
At least with Obama, they only plotted to obstruct him the day of his inauguration.
Look how far they’ve come!
