‘“To make life as difficult for people as we can”​—​that would be an apt motto for the Obama worldview. ‘

The Weekly Standard calls a National Park Service goon a goon. Read the whole thing.

This is how deep the politicization of Barack Obama’s administration goes. The Park Service falls under the Department of the Interior, and its director is a political appointee. Historically, the directorship has been nonpartisan and the service has functioned as a civil, not a political, unit. Before the current director, Jonathan Jarvis, was nominated by President Obama, he’d spent 30 years as a civil servant. But he has taken to his political duties with all the fervor of a third-tier hack from the DNC, marrying the disinterested contempt of a meter maid with the zeal of an ambitious party apparatchik.

If you don’t think these shutdowns aren’t instigated out of pure spite, perhaps you’ll believe they are planned distractions to yet another Obama disaster.

Regardless, even the ‘low-information’ sorts are beginning to realize the President believes he’s a King.

[…]the federal government wasn’t so much regretfully informing the public that the money had run dry as it was attempting to remove its Royal blessing from a local Lord who does not rely on it. Nobody who genuinely recognizes government as the deferential servant of a naturally free people would view the state this way. Peeved Kings, convinced of their divine right and keen to demonstrate the folly of recalcitrant subjects, on the other hand, most certainly would. “It’s my party, and you’ll cry if I want you to,” our mandarins in D.C. appeared to say.

If you attended high school before 1976, you’ll know we fought a war to get rid of the last King. For those who didn’t, and therefore didn’t get their American history the way it should be taught, this link will get you started.
