    But the point is, people assumed that he was an aberration, that once he was gone things wouldn't be so bad. Fast forward to Obama. The fact that he continues, and even enhances some of Bush's worst abuses is now causing a lot of confusion.

    Here's Obama, an intelligent, thoughtful, seemingly well-meaning guy.... but he's doing pretty much the same stuff Bush did! What's up with that?! Hmmm... maybe we were wrong all along. Maybe what Bush was doing was NOT so extreme.

    After all, Obama is a far different person than Bush, and even HE is doing it.

    See? That's why I've said, and continue to believe, that what Obama is doing is even more harmful and dangerous than what Bush did. He has made it... the new normal.
