I’m happy for Barack Obama, but the blatant “Obamamania” in this country is a little concerning when it occurs in the media so openly. See the video of Chris Matthews saying his job is to support the president? Then read the quote from Theodore Roosevelt.

“Every man who parrots the cry of ‘stand by the President’ without adding the proviso ‘so far as he serves the Republic’ takes an attitude as essentially unmanly as that of any Stuart royalist who championed the doctrine that the King could do no wrong. No self-respecting and intelligent free man could take such an attitude.” – Theodore Roosevelt
