Some Plato

When such men are only private individuals and before they get power, this is their character; they associate entirely with their own flatterers or ready tools; or if they want anything from anybody, they in their turn are equally ready to bow down before them: they profess every sort of affection for them; but when they have gained their point they know them no more.”

“They are always either the masters or servants and never the friends of anybody; the tyrant never tastes of true freedom or friendship.”

Obama stands no chance of pulling off a tyrannical government. But the desire is there to observe.
