  •  Prosecuting more whistleblowers than... (12+ / 0-)

    ...any other president, fewer prosecutions of banksters than Bush, more aggressive prosecution of pot users, deporting more people without visas than any other president...

    And that's just off the top of my head.

    So this:

    But to the extent that there are differences (and I agree that there are two few), they all favor the Obama administration.

    is false.

    Barack Obama: So morally bankrupt that he thinks people who tortured other people to death should get a pass. Likes to prosecute whistleblowers and pot smokers, though.

    •  Well you'll have an opportunity... (0+ / 0-)

      ...to put the folks who were in charge of the Bush DoJ back in charge next year if you honestly feel they were better!

      I'm frankly a bit shocked by the number of people willing to sign on to that viewpoint (and I write that as a total critic of this adminstration and its DoJ).

        •  Why do you think Romney or Gingrich... (0+ / 0-)

          ...would be worse than Bush?

          I'm just asking you to own your argument.

          If you honestly think that Obama is worse than Bush, why aren't you supporting the Republicans next year?
