The tears of our formally hopeful voters for Obama are so yummy. Slate:
In reversing one of its last principled positions—that American courts are sufficiently nimble, fair, and transparent to try Mohammed and his confederates—the administration surrendered to the bullying, fear-mongering, and demagoguery of those seeking to create two separate kinds of American law. This isn’t just about the administration allowing itself to be bullied out of its commitment to the rule of law. It’s about the president and his Justice Department conceding that the system of justice in the United States will have multiple tiers—first-class law for some and junk law for others.
Yeah. Obama was bullied in to “reversing one of his last principled positions”. That’s it. It just CAN’T be that he isn’t, you know, principled, and like virtually every other politician in the history of government made promises he never intended on keeping for the purpose of getting votes.
