DAVID HARSANYI: The Crumbling Cult of Obama: Sorry guys, there are no more kings. “The Founding Fathers rightly feared that the purer the democracy the more susceptible voters would be to the emotion of the moment and the demagogues who take advantage of it. Needless to say, we are democratic enough to get the politicians we deserve. But debate is not dysfunction. Feel free to bemoan the fact that the American people are not automatons, but ‘getting stuff done’ is not the charge of the Constitution. Neither is having a king, though sometimes you get the feeling that a lot of folks who believe in power as the wellspring of morality are really annoyed by that fact.”
