Just as people in Kenya do not and likely cannot.
The idea of "opposition" and "compromise" does not fit into the politics of simpler minded people. They think only in terms of absolutes. A man with an IQ of 90 (my personal guess at Obama, in contrast to the abysmal 92 of George Bush) cannot handle complex ideas like "opposition." There's the big monkey and he gets all the coconuts until a bigger monkey kills him and takes all the coconuts.
You heard him. He "won." That means he can do whatever he wants to, right?
Obama is perfect leadership for a country with an average IQ of 96 like the United States in recent statistics.
The woman who stole the blanket at the inauguration gave it away in even simpler minded terms, "Black people are in the White House now. Everything is free."
The truth is, such people are wholly incompatible with free republics. They can live in them the way pigeons nest in your barn. That doesn't make the pigeons into farmers.
