Victor Davis Hanson has a terrific column comparing Obama to The Borg from "Star Trek". I had made the same comparison recently, so I enjoyed reading this. One of the commenters, KomradCal, says "Liberalism is itself the epitome of The Borg." and "Liberals believe they are independent thinkers but are more prone to GroupThink than any other collection of like-minded people on earth."
Quin Hillyer perfectly describes Obama's three typical gambits.
