Short and sweet: Good points.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION: Top 45 Lies in Obama’s Speech at UN | Washington’s Blog

Pretty good analysis.

It’s sad that George Fucking Bush is at this point seeming to be a more honest president than Obama.

Bush did bad and mostly admitted it as him just being an asshole with an asshole agenda; Obama does the same shit but tries to frame it as if he’s not doing it.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION: Well-sourced list of 252 examples of lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, etc.

Wow.

I’m not going to pretend to have read all this (got about 50 in so far), but the onus to read this list is really on the people who are still making excuses to defend our current jackass of a president.

BIG BROTHER: The Surveillance Speech: A Low Point in Barack Obama’s Presidency – Conor Friedersdorf – The Atlantic

And yet, there are many who still think Obama is a good president because he’s better than McCain would have been.  

That’s kind of like saying vomit is a good food because it’s better than eating feces.

This is a nice deconstruction of Obama’s bullshit, which half the country seems to swallow hook, line, and sinker.

Obama has taken away as much civil liberty as Bush at this point, if not more.

Great job.

POLITICS: Noam Chomsky: Obama’s Attack on Civil Liberties Has Gone Way Beyond Imagination

A great interview with a great man.

At least some people on the left can acknowledge that Obama is not really left or liberal.

The amazing part is how people just plug their fingers into their ears and pretend like none of this is real.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION: Executive Order Grants US Gov’t New Powers Over Communication Systems

Obama: Continually proving himself as bad for civil rights as George W. Bush ever was. 

Seizing private communications facilities so that they are silenced? Really?

This is unconstitutional, anti-American, police-state bullshit. The type I’ve come to expect from Obama & Bush.

But oh. It’s to make us safer from a terrorist attack, right? So it’s okay, then. Just like the internet kill switch is okay! When Iran/Libya/Egypt seize communcations, it’s bad. When we do it, it’s good. America, fuck yeah.

And don’t say this was already law, or the executive order would have not been needed. If someplace is communicating something that actually incites violence, there are already laws in place to deal with that.

GOVERNMENT TRANSPARENCY: Obama asserts executive privilege on Fast and Furious documents

Wow, Obama is sure upholding his promise for a more transparent government!
