CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN SAME OLD BULLSHIT
Turley has some devasting things to say about Obama's clearly-lacking Civil Liberties bona fides:
It is impossible to have a Constitutional right that can never be enforced. And that's what we have here - and it's a terrible moment, I think for many people, but, you can not any longer suggest President Obama is advancing the civil liberties and privacy interests that he promised to advance. This is a terrible roll-back. It's a terrible decision. And the Obama people seem to be arguing that the Bush people were bad people doing bad things, but you know what? It doesn't matter if you say you are a good person doing bad things, you're doing bad things and that what this is.That last sentence is really the perfect summary of the Obama presidency: wonderful words that are oh-so-soothing after the wounds inflicted by Bush & Cheney.
But Obama's actions so far? Well, to put it bluntly, they suck.
