    That means re-electing the same Democrats currently in the House and the Senate.  How do I get improved performance from that?

    I was not hacking "every move Obama makes", I was focusing on two that could be catastrophic for the country, the history of his Presidency, and the prospects for the Democratic Party.  Democrats better start waking up that danger.   Because a Republican with the executive powers that President Obama is currently exercising with zero transparency and little accountability are the invitation to tyranny.  Our government institutions depended on checks and balances and not on virtuous elected officials.  Those checks and balances disappear with secrecy.  And that is dangerous enough that I think that it needs to be fixed now and not wait for another Bush-like President.

    We folks who voted for him are owed at least the clear evidence that the military-industrial state has not staged a coup.  And increasingly that is what government behavior is looking like.  The failure to declassify material for Senators like Senator Wyden is not a sign of a President who is comfortable with the truth.
