    Of COURSE it has something to do with Obama. It sounds like you're trying to give him a pass on this. And, yeah, good liberals like me who voted for him in two elections have a motivation to want to rationalize why it's not our guy doing all this bad Orwellian stuff, but that it's just the system and there's nothing our hero could do about it.

    First, even though it probably is true that the system has become an overbearing freight train that cannot be steered or stopped, no matter how good the intentions of the guy who is put into the front car of that train, the President *is* the symbol of that government, and his face is the face of that government. So, yeah, if it's the USA doing it, the guy who's been the president for the last 5 years is the face that you put on it.

    " "My job this morning is to be so persuasive...that a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Barack," he told a crowd of about 300 Ivy Leaguers--and, by the looks of it, a handful of locals who managed to gain access to what was supposed to be a students-only event.

    For one thing, under an Obama presidency, Americans will be able to leave behind the era of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and "wiretaps without warrants," he said. (He was referring to the lingering legal fallout over reports that the National Security Agency scooped up Americans' phone and Internet activities without court orders, ostensibly to monitor terrorist plots, in the years after the September 11 attacks.)
