Macaulay on the Dullard Monarch

Adjust

jamesoneandgeorgewbush

To reason, indeed, he was not in the habit of attending. His mode of arguing, if it is to be so called, was one not uncommon among dull and stubborn persons, who are accustomed to be surrounded by their inferiors. He asserted a proposition; and, as often as wiser people ventured respectfully to show that it was erroneous, he asserted it again, in exactly the same words, and conceived that, by doing so, he at once disposed of all objections.

Thomas Babington Macaulay, The History of England From the Accession of James II, vol. 2, ch. 6 (1848)
