  •  So the fact that he even threatened to veto it (1+ / 0-)

    only because it wasn't sufficiently draconian apparently means nothing?

    When Truman vetoed the Internal Security Act in 1950 and watched Congress override the veto, his argument was that he couldn't support it because it "would make a mockery of our Bill of Rights.”

    Obama is not that kind of person.

    But, of course,  that's really of no consequence, as long as it's your guy.

    Btw, one of the worst aspects of US authoritarianism is that it plays into the hands of states like Iran, China, Russia, Belarus etc, because "the US does it too."

    Thanks a fucking bunch, Obama.

    To be rich and prosperous, a nation must have a safe, secure supply of wood.
