Let me just say a thing.
Man, who gives a fuck about the IRSgate? (Have they tacked a ‘gate’ onto that one yet? I’m just gonna go ahead and bet they have.)
Why aren’t we in uproar about the drone killings? About the fact that he’s pretty obviously gone to the other side of Gitmo - about the forced feedings? About the silencing and prosecution of the press? About the lack of transparency? About the treatment of Bradley Manning? About the FBI shooting an unarmed man? About the continued wiretapping? About the fact that he’s taken Bush’s policies and run them halfway down the field?
I am incensed that I appear to be agreeing with *
Ragnar up there the Republicans, but facts are facts. Obama isn’t holding up to his promises, and I’m getting pretty sick and tired of people defending that. I’m not trying to call Fred out, and Yes, I know full well Romney would almost certainly have been as bad or worse. But this shit has got to stop, and as long as we’re all pointing at the Republicans and ignoring it, I don’t see that happening.
