      president were fiscal.  I pulled one out of my memory that proved that statement wrong.  I'm not trying to trump anything, but I'm not willing to dismiss historic gains by historicaly opressed groups.

      I do not agree with some of the NS civil liberty decisions made by this administration, but I also reject the frameing of your post.  Obama has attempted to bring people to trial and close Gitmo.
