    George III was vain of his own brains, intransigent and refused to change his mind on anything

    James II was at odds with most of his subjects and insisted on forcing unpopular legislation no matter how unpopular.

    Charles I Arrogant, conceited and self destructive.

    Obama has no leadership experience or governing experience. He has no business experience and has never been in charge of anything. To make it worse, he surrounded himself with idiots and fired the few who could actually help him do his job. I have high school students with more leadership "style" than Obama.

    Who does Obama most resemble as a ruler?
    Charles I of England
    George III of England
    Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany
    Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria
    James II of England
    The Tukuagawa Shoguns of Japan
    Consul Crassus of the late Roman republic

    Most of these were Kings or dictators that really didn't have to deal with elections.

    I'd pick someone that wanted the authority but not the responsibility.

    Wiki is, like, McDonalds when it comes to political references. Lots of fat and salt and calories, but no nutrition.

    You cannot, under any circumstances, compare a former King of England to the incumbant US President. I just flies in the face of all that's morally decent.
