(Newser) – That jarring thud you just heard was Obamania crashing back to earth. For reneging on promises and making "Bill Clinton look like a paragon of integrity," President Obama must quit his post, Ted Rall writes in the Springfield Journal-Register. “Obama is useless. Worse than that, he’s dangerous,” Rall writes, eviscerating Obama's stance on the indefinite detention of Gitmo terror suspects.

“Obama wants to let government goons snatch you, me and anyone else they deem annoying off the street,” writes Rall, a syndicated columnist for Universal Press Syndicate who admits to voting for Obama. The president “is cute. He is charming. But there is something rotten inside him. He is a monster, and he should remove himself from power.”
