Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

To all anti-Obama posters [View all]

I posted this in reply to another thread, but I thought it deserved a post of it's own:

As far as progressing the Liberal agenda, I'm sure he will do more during his second term. He has already begun sparring more with the Republicans realizing that they are not going to compromise the way that one would expect from a rational party. He has already ended DADT and has given every indication that he hopes to lead the fight to end DOMA including instructing the DOJ that he considers it unconstitutional. However, that is up to SCOTUS and/or Congress to actually end it.

As for the renewed PATRIOT Act, what a lot of people don't realize is that he renewed a few provisions of PATRIOT Act 2, which is vastly different from the original and which he actually voted for as Senator .

As for the drone program, I really don't understand why people are so dead-set against it when it has greatly reduced the numbers of "collateral damage". It's certainly not perfect, but it's the best we've ever had in the past. As for the war, Obama didn't start it, but he is working hard to stop it. Remember, there were 2 wars when he took over.

As for GITMO, he ordered it closed. It was the NIMBY's in Congress that stopped the XO and kept GITMO open.

I'm sorry that he is NOT a dictator that gives you every thing you want - no, scratch that - I am very glad that he is NOT a dictator.
