Barack Obama: In the Footsteps of Twentieth Century Despots

"In his public speeches and well-produced appearances, Barack Obama plays the fictional role of someone who cares for the "little guy." He is the people's avenger against those he defines as the enemy, be it the wealthy, the corporations, deeply committed religious groups, conservatives and the Tea Party movement, or those intransigent ideologues in Congress who stand in the way of his nation-saving agenda. In this quest for power, there are no lies or obfuscations too egregious to tell or societal tensions too dangerous to create, as he alone can save the nation" [Steve McCann].
