If you’ve had enough of our President acting like a King then read my friend Gene Healy’s book The Cult of the Presidency: America’s Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power. The book was written in 2008 but reads as if the ink is still wet. Healy gives the reader a Constitutional schooling on how far we’ve come from our Founding document. If more Americans understood Healy’s spot on analysis then our infatuation with treating Presidents like Kings would be history. No longer would the State of the Union be a prime time event. Watch this video from an All Star lineup of Cato experts’ on Obama’s SOTU. And be sure to tune in at the 4:25 minutes section for Healy’s show stealing quote “when exactly” and his advice to President Obama for next year’s SOTU: Mail it in.
