    is that so many people's worldview and sense of worth in society is wrapped up in whether the Dear Leader is a good or bad person at heart. I've talked to people here who, if it turned out that Obama didn't care about them or if he wasn't "nice," would have their whole outlook on life wrecked.

    Look, it matters, but he's not our friend, and we don't know him personally. What matters more is what he did, does, and will do. If he's going to order drone strikes in which some innocent people including children will die, if he's going to deport a record number of people, if he's going to let more people's lives be wrecked in the drug war, if he's going to let banksters get away with defrauding millions of their homes and life savings, but he does all of this regretfully, well, whoop-de-doo! One more well-intentioned layer of asphalt on the road to hell.

    Anyone might think Obama is overall a good President or a bad President. Whether he's a good person at heart is secondary.

    Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.
