What a terrific column by Quin Hillyer, who encourages Obama to abdicate and spare us more misery. Here's an excerpt:
resign already. Go. Be gone. Vamoose. Get out of our lives. More
important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations
and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power

derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and
just step off his self-made throne.
