L'Ancien Regime

The Obama presidency increasingly resembles a modern-day Ancien R�gime: extravagant and out of touch with the American people – Telegraph Blogs: "What the great French historian Alexis de Tocqueville would make of today’s Obama administration were he alive today is anyone’s guess. But I would wager that the author of L’Ancien R�gime and Democracy in America would be less than impressed with the extravagance and arrogance on display among the White House elites that rule America as though they had been handed some divine right to govern with impunity."
RTWT. Note that there are 874(!) comments as I post this and it at least starts out looking like they're mostly Americans (the Telegraph is British) starved to ditch MSNBCNBCBSNYeT! Gardiner pretty much nails it too...
