The Choir Grows

More folks are catching on as time goes by.

Policies that were wrong under George W. Bush are no less wrong because Barack Obama is in the White House. (my emphasis)

One of the most disappointing aspects of the early months of the Obama administration has been its unwillingness to end many of the mind-numbing abuses linked to the so-called war on terror and to establish a legal and moral framework designed to prevent those abuses from ever occurring again.

The list expands beyond just the GWoT, but the gist of the Op-Ed is that what's wrong is wrong, regardless of who the president is. But from my perspective, Obama keeping Bush policies in place makes him worse than Bush, because he has effectively lied to America and stabbed many of his most ardent supporters in the back.

At least when Bush was giving us the finger, we expected it.


Forcing private insurers on Americans

Regarding health care, the claims by private insurers that nearly 2/3rds of Americans would drop their private plans in favor of a public option is a de facto admission that private insurance is a failure, and the only way to keep most Americans using private insurance is to force that to be our only option.

That's pretty damned disgusting, as it is a glaring example of the insidious nature of private health insurers.
