Obama: No Longer Who I Voted For

Obama: No Longer Who I Voted For

Suddenly, there standing before us, the current President of the United States speaking about surveillance and military matters. In speeches and TV interviews, suddenly the guy I supported and voted for twice became this tired old guy spouting the blatherings of the military-intelligence industrial complex.

Well, somebody better tell the “old guy” that he just dropped ten points in the polls… I wonder why.

Wholesale surveillance of telephone and e-mail communications is now just fine with him. After all, it’s judicially supervised by a secret court that just can’t find a government application that it didn’t like.

Of course, according to him, we can trust and rely upon the word of the NSA and CIA to not open any of our communications and do what they were created for, spying on people.

They would never break the law, he assured us. After all, he continued, we really need these programs to protect us from terrorists even though nobody can point to a case where they actually protected us.

Lastly, we really must pursue these traitorous leakers because they have harmed us and put people in dangerous even though we can’t named anyone so harmed.

Well, somebody better tell the “old guy” that he just dropped ten points in the polls… I wonder why.
