  •  The example the Troubadour used (6+ / 0-)

    is a perfect example of the kind of over the top criticism that no one can reasonably take on. IMO he's right in pointing it out.

    The things you list that you want are things that I totally agree with, honesty and transparency are important. But I believe that we all can agree he can't just open the doors and show everything at any moment, the raid on OBL for example needed secrecy and security to carry out before the honesty and transparency part.

    I want my President to respect the Constitution and mourn what has happened to the Fourth Amendment in particular. I do have to say that most of the damage done has been done by SCOTUS and lower courts, but I want him to do better than he has done.

    As for the money in politics and the power it carries, it surely isn't confined to the White House and it damn sure isn't going to get better until we as a people demand it. With a country infested with Teahadist idiots it's going to take a while.

    I have to say that I agree with Troubadour on this, the two sides aren't equal in the way they are represented here and the critics allow for some fairly long stretches of hyperbole when it comes to their barbs. Far worse than anything that comes from those who admire the President.
