Yeah, I'm upset. This is mostly to get this off of my chest, and hopefully to get some people to think.

  1. Do you, at any point in your presidency, plan to fight for anything besides getting more money for wars?
  1. Tell me more about the false choice between liberty and security. Oh, and about the rule of law.

  1. Do you think it would be possible for the United States to get through a single year without dropping any bombs on foreign countries and without assassinating any foreigners?
  1. How about a single day? (You could make a holiday out of it with a ceremonial foreigner - but I digress.)
  1. When you are thinking about the deficit: does it occur to you that military spending can also be cut? Does it seem reasonable to spend almost as much money on the army as the rest of the world combined?
  1. Which is more important: the deficit or killing people?
  1. Do you think anybody in the real world cares aboutbipartisanship?

There. I feel better now.

PS Bonus question for any readers who think it is somehow wrong or too soon to criticize Obama: when do you think it would be appropriate to start criticizing him? January 20, 2017? And what would be the point of criticizing him then, precisely?

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
