Don’t be shocked that Barack has a literary precursor birthed during the turbulent Tudor age in all its manic creativity and grandeur. First modern playwright Christopher Marlowe, whose demons eventually overcame prodigious dramatic gifts, is a fitting author for the backdrop of the sordid tale of Barack Obama. Predating Shakespeare’s feats, Marlowe’s epic Tamburlaine the Great is the story of an unprincipled, megalomaniac, demented ruler whose psyche breaks as his demise is delivered. At the end of this superb play, King Tamburlaine throws down the Koran in an ill-fated and cursed symbol of his war against God. For immediately after this portentous act, and his plan to conquer the world, he is suddenly struck dead.

Obama utterly reverses Tamburlaine by tossing down the Bible, America’s source book, trampling and tearing it asunder, before bowing down to pagan Muslim kings. At the same time, instead of seeking to conquer the world, Barack first embarked upon ruinous economic spending which then justified massive slashing of the American military. This essay examines the reigns of Barack versus Tamburlaine the Great.
