Obama and the Rule of Law

"President Obama’s hero Abraham Lincoln had a famously worshipful view of the rule of law. 'Let reverence for the laws,' he said in his Lyceum Address, 'be breathed by every American mother, to the lisping babe, that prattles on her lap — let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice.'
"President Obama’s implicit rejoinder: 'Whatever.'" Rich Lowry, National Review
