87. History repeats itself, but Obama & his administration are blind to it.
Czar Nicholas & Czarina Alexandra listened enthfalled to their advisor, Rasputin and never heard the crowds marching through the streets of St. Petersburg and massing at the gates of the Winter Palace.

Louis the XVI was similarly clueless and ineffectual at responding to the demands of his impoverished subjects.

We thought we elected a progressive democrat, but we got a wanna-be monarch.
