The story speaks for itself

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obama-uses-funeral-service-talk-about-himself_690960.html

In the short 1,600 word speech, Obama used the word "my" 21 times, "me" 12 times, and "I" 30 times.

It's amazing to compare Obama's speeches to Bush's. With as much as the world flamed Bush for his supposed lack of eloquence, at least when he talked about something he talked about something. With Obama though, everything is merely another opportunity to revel in his eminence.

He thinks he's personally a dictator. Bush also didn't tell people to vote for him in order to get "revenge". Obama is a dangerous man who's a threat to all of us.

What would you recommend we do about it. Obama is our Elected King until January of 2017.

Objectivism (the philosophy and world view) is very big on asserting the ego. So what is the problem?

Narcissism is not rational egoism.

That's why I call him Obama bin Laden, because he is a worse enemy to this country than Osama bin Laden ever was.

But Obama doesn't really have an ego and his narcissism is a neurotic defense.

See Ayn Rand's essay "Selfishness Without a Self" in Philosophy: Who Needs It.

Unfortunately he is our elected King and the way congress is constituted there is virtually no chance of Obama ever being impeached and convicted regardless of what he does. Ergo, the only thing to do is stoically endure the unendurable until January 20, 2017. The only shot we Good Guys have is to turn the Senate into a Republican domain and keep the Republican majority in the House in the 2014 bi-election.

If the Good Guys continue to make the case for what little goodness they have left in them in the half-ass manner they did in 2012, they'll loose ground -- and Hillary will be running in 2016 . . .

Any public appearance by Ayn Rand, Yaron Brook, Harry Binswanger, Leonard Peikoff, John Lewis, Andy Bernstein, etc., etc., etc.

There are also the handful of intellectuals who, although not Objectivists, can make good arguments for freedom (I include the Founders in this category.)

We've also seen politicians who can argue against statism rather well. They simply need to be protected and given a bigger soapbox.

Finally, we have activist citizens who do what they can to hold the line, either on the local level or in one to one discussions.

It would start with the moral courage to speak out on principle and stop the Republican concessions to Obama's demagoguery. But it takes people with a public platform to do that. John Boehner is an example of how many prominent conservatives accelerate the decline.

You can't change the fact of raw political power. But you can resist in every legal way possible. Give them nothing they don't take by force, either materially or intellectually. Protect yourself personally the best you can and don't help Obama's "economy" succeed.

Mark Levin's radio talk show is an example of a conservative who has the moral backbone and analytical skills to publicly and soundly articulate the needed rejection -- from Obama to establishment Republicans like Boehner -- and not be morally intimidated. He also says he is working on practical political strategies involving local and state authority, capitalizing on the record-breaking (in the about the last half century) dominance of Republican governors, and power in state legislatures, but hasn't said the details yet. (Obama's community organizing antics "vote for me for revenge" took the election for President, not every other elected office, even though he acts like a dictator.)

Levin is also doing whatever he can to use his Landmark Legal Foundation go after the Obama administration's abuse. (Levin was in the Reagan Justice Dept.)

Apparently Obama goes back tho Hawaii every Christmans to visit the Manger where he was born.

It came upon a midnight dust storm? The question all along should not have been what country was he born in but rather what planet he is from.

It's not likely he will be looking to repeat the other end of the manger sequence, but will instead appoint many surrogates to take his place.

Barak Obama once claimed to come from Krypton. Which would make him an illegal immigrant and not legally qualified to hold the office he now has.

What makes you think that? Once a community organizer always a community organizer. We didn't see the last of the Clintons after 8 years of torment. They exploited their position to become wealthy, and continue to haunt the country with the "narrative" of how great they are as they manipulate public policy. It doesn't stop there. Hilary intends to trump Obama's manger scene by rising from the dead. Then it will be Obama's turn.

True. But he wont be President after Jan 20, 2017. Obama cannot rise again as long as we have the 22 nd amendment.

He may no longer be President before that, promoting himself to dictator. The 22nd Amendment doesn't apply to dictators, spouse surrogates or interplanetary aliens posing as Kenyans. By then, what is left of the Constitution may not apply at all. The government we have is already not what was authorized in the Constitution, which is partially followed now only as a parody and even that out of nothing but momentum. You may have to crank up your Sopwith Camel one last time to escape (if gasoline is still allowed). Bicycles aren't good in sand, snow or deep water.

You expect Obama and his buddies to execute a coup d'etat?

If that happens all bets are off. We may have bloody violence in this nation before such an outrage is sorted out.

It's a little late to say "expecting" for something that is already in progress. Whatever it's called and whether they admit they aren't following the Constitution it's already happening and it's only a question of how much farther Obama gets. Who knows what crises they will create accompanied by what demagoguery for "emergency powers" in what realms, which Republicans are too incompetent and too morally cowardly to challenge.

Obama has already threatened to ignore Congressional limits on debt - saying he "won't play that game", announced that he will put his full weight behind destroying the Second Amendment, is thumbing his nose at Congress with Executive Orders to create his own laws, making political appointments without Senate confirmation, spending record-breaking funds without a budget for three years, and is ignoring other laws he doesn't like (such as FOIA). Much of what they are doing is buried in bureaucracy and secret communications and so is unknown to the public. (EPA and other agencies have for example been using secret "private" email accounts and servers for government business to hide what they are doing.)

Would you put anything past them? Could anything they do surprise you? Obama, Reid, Pelosi and the rest of them are dangerous, ruthless power seekers completely alien to what this country was supposed to be, and they have real, raw power. They are far worse than they openly acknowledge (even with the slips like 'vote for me for revenge' and all the rest) because they don't dare admit to the "S" and "F" words -- yet. By the time it gets that far it will be considered much less controversial and too late. Too many people will no longer see it as the outrage it is. Most typically become accustomed to the new level of deprivations and don't know what to do or think even when they don't like it. (Look at how Obama Health Control is being imposed.)

Their union thugs are already creating open, physical violence, and so are the punitive non-objective laws. If you mean people rioting in the streets and vigilantism, who knows how soon that will come? We do know that they want it to exploit as crisis and chaos in their deconstruction of the country.

With this kind of progressive disintegration it's simplistic to think of it as sudden coup d'etat. At what single point would you describe the disintegration of Germany into the Weimar Republic and then the Nazis as coup d'etat? But with enough instability who knows what could set off something much more sudden and dramatic. With the right crisis and professional "community organizer" demagogues fanning seething resentment and hatred you can't entirely rule that out either.
