To recap "Obama justice":  if you create an illegal worldwide torture regime, illegally spy on Americans without warrants, abduct people with no legal authority, or invade and destroy another country based on false claims, then you are fully protected.  But if you expose any of the evils secretly perpetrated as part of those lawless actions -- by publishing the truth about what was done -- then you are an Evil Criminal who deserves the harshest possible prosecution.

This isn’t the first whistle blower Obama has silenced. Not even close.

So much for Mr. Transparency.

To be fair, he inherited a lot of those things. But yes, then continued running with them.

Yeah, he inheirited a total sack of shit from rampaging looneys who thought 9/11 was the worst thing ever (not even close, think of Pearl Harbor you fucking morons).

But he absolutely did nothing to change any of it. He has no balls, all he wants to do is enact symbolic social reforms. It's great to end DADT, change abortion funding, install Healthcare, etc. But none of that addresses fundamental constitutional violations.

Worse, he actually supports military actions at a time when our financial crisis is in part due to military oversepending. Idiot.

There's a lot cheaper ways to take care of the fucknuts in the Middle East. But those wouldn't get us oil fields.
