The President defiantly defends his position as the stage is set for a dramatic face-off with Congress. This is the final chapter in his fight against evil, how evil is now embodied in every American who opposes his war and his elaborate scheme to bring democracy to all corners of the earth where tyranny threatens humanity. This is a man who stands tall ready to pull the trigger and shoot down anyone who crosses his path, the path to Armageddon.
