    is somewhat confusing and leaves me wondering what exactly your position is.  In the first you say:

    I think everyone needs to chill the fuck out and wait to see what happens next.  

    and then in the second you close with:

    So let's put the pressure on.

    Waiting to see what happens next and putting the pressure on would appear, at least at first glance, to be somewhat contradictory actions.  It's difficult to "get" what you're really advocating here.

    My personal feeling is that Obama is cranking up the fire and getting the pot boiling.  He had to know releasing these memos would generate a lot of anger and provide new fodder for investigation demands.

    It remains to be seen what "We the People" are going to do next.  It's my opinion that unless the people get pretty outraged and demanding that the Obama administration isn't going to be able to do much about BushCo's crimes.  

    So far, the Obama administration has tossed out several invitations for the American people to be loudly and visibly supportive of investigation and so far the American people have not responded in any significant way to those invitations.

    If America doesn't demonstrate the political will for this Obama's hands are tied on it IMO.
