    if one excerpts the highlighted section, changing the single instance of the President's name from "Bush" to "Obama," the quote would be generally applicable here on this Website.

      Obama has proven himself far more trustworthy on national security than Bush.  Leaving aside the Iraq war (because that happened later), at the time that Greenwald believed "that [Bush] was entitled to have his national security judgment deferred to", Bush had just ignored a bunch of people screaming that al Qaeda was going to attack us, and then they did.  Or, put another way, abject deference to Obama is a sign of uncritical thinking. Abject deference to Bush after 9/11 is a sign of utter stupidity.

        to interpret this as on attack on left-wing purity and purists, but it wasn't unless somehow GG is the elected leader of the purists.

        I see what you did there.
