I admit I've avoided saying this for the past few years (it's been well past time) but for some reason I always want to give the guy a flipping chance that he simply doesn't deserve. Why? I don't know, maybe because I figured the alternative was even worse. But now I'm not so sure.
Believe it or not, Cindy Sheehan was one of the first people to have sussed this guy's catastrophic effect on the Peace and Progressive movements. At the time I was fairly close to Cindy, working at her congressional campaign office nearly every day (this was in late 2008, when she was running against Nancy Pelosi and Obama was running for his first term). Everyone was ecstatic over the idea of Obama breaking the color barrier, it was all "hope and change" for progressive minded people, but Cindy wasn't having any of it. She saw how quickly her former friends shut their mouths about peace and real change to fall in line with Obama's "hopey-changey" bullshit. Obama's election was the death knell for the peace movement and she knew it.
This man is a not only a liar, he is a traitor to the Constitution that he purports to be such an expert about. I don't know what the alternative should be but this administration is criminal and it ought to be removed. There, I said it. Whatcha gonna do about it, Obama? You can't shoot us *all*, you can't imprison us *all* ... and the truth will never die.
[To be fair, another perspective is that Obama is being pressured to attack Syria and he's not complying, which is why all the Big Brother outrage is coming out *now*. I think we need to hold a constitutional convention or something. The entire federal government, all three branches, are corrupt to the core.]
