    Nasty,

    First my disclaimer, I voted for Obama. That being said he is putting things ahead and stopping the war in a reasonable way. It would only compound our culpability if we just left. We need to leave as quickly as possible while giving the populace the tools they need to be successful. If we continue to act irresponsibly as we were by our motives then we will compound the problem. Stick to Iraq’s government’s request to move out, it would be great if we could reasonably and responsibly move out faster.

    That having been said I must admit to being very disappointed in a great many moves by Obama’s administration. The choices made about wiretap continuations, and lack of accountability. The governments 180 on torture accountability. Although they did good in releasing the memos that admit to the torture, we already knew that. Proof is great but not nearly enough. These are just a few of the disappointing moves that Obama and his crowd have made. I wanted and hoped for better, and it looks like he is sliding more and more. What happened to Obama “The great Hope”?!?! It is a rhetorical question, for the most part. Every day we see less and less, I still believe he is better than the options at the time, but I still hoped for better.

    “At least the current administration is putting a stop to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. What? There’s still a war on?”

    Give your head a shake, NASTY. Obama is committing 30,000 additional US troops into Afghanistan

    Obama already has a record of abandoning his promises when they are no longer convenient. He’s adopted the Republican technique of “say whatever will get you elected, then do whatever your campaign contributors paid you for.”

    He promised he would accept spending limits and public campaign financing. Then he decided that wasn’t to his advantage anymore.

    He promised he would make all non-emergency bills publicly available on his website for five days between Congress approving them and him signing them. Only one bill in the first 11 was posted online.

    And so on:

    Um, are you sure that’s really limited to Republicans? Rather, “just about all politicians”?

    Maybe we should give our politicians 100 days mandates and no more? (kidding)

    The fact is that democracy is never ‘done’. If the population does not step up to keep its politicians honest (wo! daunting!) it will then live under termed dictatorship.

    Kudos to the EFF and it is for us to support its action by any means necessary.

    is anyone really suprised that this administration is dealing under the table? if there is one medium that has the capacity to be used to overthrow this shameful collection of power/control freaks, it is the net.
    beloved leader and his ilk will stop at nothing until they have the power to control ALL the media, because when you control the media, the sheeple accept whatever pap is being shoveled at any given moment.

    That Obama, all sunshine and secrecy.
