Rules are for "little people"

The Secret Service gave information to the White House suggesting that an Obama aide had a prostitute in his hotel room in Colombia. This led to the firing or punishment of nearly two dozen Secret Service agents and U.S. soldiers, but not the aide.
Oh yeah, the aide in question was the son of a lobbyist who had, coincidentally, made a rather significant contribution to Obama's campaign fund.

Hope and change, my arse.


"It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass."
You mean, like rewriting the law of the land?
The White House is drafting options that would allow President Barack Obama to close the detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, by overriding a congressional ban on bringing detainees to the U.S., senior administration officials said.

Such a move would be the latest and potentially most dramatic use of executive power by the president in his second term.
Yeah, Gwyneth... power-wise... I'm thinkin' he's doing just fine.
