This is strangely fitting. Attach your own interpretation.

Cartoon by [undecipherable] portraying President Obama as refusing to destroy the LotR-like Ring (of “State Secrets” and “Executive Privileges”) inside Mount Doom

Though, it’s less and less clear if Obama was corrupted post-inauguration, or if Americans weren’t just all sweet-talked into electing a conniving tyrant into office. (Not to speak ill of his intentions; but Obama has shown a greed for unquestionable authority, especially in court cases challenging executive power, that absolutely earns him the title of “tyrant”.)
