Law Professor: “President Obama Or King Obama?”

A Law Professor at George Mason University is afraid that we are on the horizon of a crowning government. Professor and author, Francis Buckley, is ready to state that President Obama will be, “the most consequential American president since George Washington.”

Buckley says George Washington was considered the “indispensable man” when he left the seat of President, but President Obama will be acknowledged as “the person who assumed king-like powers as President.”

Professor Buckley wrote a shorter, opinion article for Fox News that included information from his recently released book, “The Once and Future King: The Rise of Crown Government in America.” The book describes an America that is returning to a crown kind of government, like when King George III ruled in Britain.

In the article, Buckley references George Mason during the 1787 Convention when the Constitution was created. Mason remarked that the American President would become an “elective monarch” and worse than the real thing.

Buckley explains that while this government didn’t start with President Obama, he has certainly taken it to a higher level. The professor says that the way President Obama makes and unmakes laws without consent on Congress; the spending of government dollars; committing America to war; and rewarding his friends while punishing his enemies makes him “rex quondam, rex futurus – the once and future king.”

“Who cares which party controls the Senate, if all the action is at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue,” said Buckley in his column. He believes that if Democrats want to continue to complain about the underfunding of Senate campaigns then they only have themselves to blame for the Obama administration.
