Hope is ...

... A glass of cool water on a hot day.

Hope is NOT your "president of hope" protecting torturors by word or
deed by issuing morally bankrupt proclamations implying that
circumstances made torture excusable.

The difference is that a drink of cold water on a hot day gives one
hope that it won't be hot forever. But proclaiming you will not go
after torturors gives hope to those who may torture, and deprives hope
of those who seek justice and human dignity.

Obama, whatever his long-term motives, has just flushed his message of
hope down the toilet.

Remember this day: 4/20/09. The day Obama's message of hope died, and
marked the downward turn of the Obama presidency.
