Yeah, and I wanted the Barack Obama we knew in 2007 to be president. Absolute power will ruin any otherwise good person and queens are no exception.
Well, if you'd have listened to any of his critics back then, done any research, read his readings, seen his "voting record", etc...you'd have known you were getting exactly what you were voting for.
One problem was..so many people were enamored with getting the first black president voted in, they (media included) completely ignored much of Obama's teachings, writings and background. But even if you go back today, research a bit, you'll see he wasn't really pretentious.....you got what you voted for.
