That’s George Washington in the title – certainly NOT the place with all the big buildings in DC.
David Boaz from the Cato Institute noted in a 2006 essay:
What’s so great about leaving office? Surely it matters more what a president does in office. But think about other great military commanders and revolutionary leaders before and after Washington—Caesar, Cromwell, Napoleon, Lenin. They all seized the power they had won and held it until death or military defeat.
Our Pampered Princes (and Princesses) on the Potomac have turned the term ‘public servant’ into an oxymoron of sorts, and imbuing it with a hint of sainthood… or something?
The above quote refers to the Presidency, but the symptom is the same.
