Ann Althouse reminds us of an important similarity to another president.

UPDATE—Victor Davis Hanson wonders if our future is 1979.

  1. There are times when that saying are literally true. For example, the president has the power to decide what information is classified and what is not, so if the president were to release classified information, it’s not illegal — it’s now unclassified.

    Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was legal for the president to attempt to eat the Presidential Seal. In fact, it’s probably happened, when the Seal is on a cake.

    But the exceptions are few and far between…

  2. This President’s Administration,(no) Regime, (no) make that Reich, has done more to drag this nation down to the level of a third world banana republic, but then again wasn’t he born in one of those? [He must be longing for his homeland.] I long for mine if we can ever find it again.
