    For the first time since Mao, a major nation is being governed by a cult of personality rather than a government of the people. While BHO speechefies, the US is degenerating to a shell of a country almost like the UK.

The list just keeps growing. I understand why Stenger - AKA Amira Hass AKA Abu Zhuri - hopes his phenomenon keeps growing.
