    snarky sarcasm. Obviously they are not exactly equal,, but continuing some of the more draconian Bush policies does make the administration culpable for the fallout, when those policies are exposed.

    It all depends on what you expected when we elected Obama. Those things you list? That's the excellent part. This NSA stuff and the drones and Guantanamo, that's the disappointment.

    We can go back and forth about legality and congressional roadblocks, which are valid arguments, but I don't care why this happened. I just want him to say, we're working on a way to make these controversial measures unnecessary. Don't cling to them, like they're a buoy in rough seas; let out some line, put distance between our country now, and those old policies.
