Failure on Civil Liberties
I've been saying this for two years, but nobody paid attention. Why doesn't anyone listen to me?! Anyway, a liberal writer (Turley) in a liberal paper (LA Times) is calling Obama, former liberal darling, to account for his flagrant failure to follow through on his campaign promises to reverse previous administrations' policies that may be damaging to American civil liberties. Turley concludes that continuing Democratic support for Obama in the face of his repeated assaults on liberal values amounts to nothing but a personality cult. OH SNAP! I'm not one to count Mr. Obama out of the 2012 presidential race at this juncture, but when his once-slavish acolytes are now raking him over the coals, his chances are looking ever dimmer.
