Link is to an article that Greenwald wrote earlier this month, The Illegal War in Libya. When I say "ruin all of my fun" in this context I mean "any shred of trust I have for President Obama".
Copy & Pasted from the article, and referring to militant/imperial foreign policy:
But it is simply the case that with regard to many (not all, but many) of the most controversial issues in this area, Obama has either equaled or exceeded Bush/Cheney. That Obama refuses to seek Congressional approval for his war (and his top officials even suggest they have the power to defy any Congressional bans) -- while Bush sought and obtained Congressional authorization for his -- should be added to that ever-growing list.
So now Obama has targeted American citizens (not that any of the other killings are ok) for unilateral and summary execution/assassination, is directing an unprecedented crackdown on whistleblowers, had (though may not have directed) members of his justice department help Bank of America try to blackmail or otherwise defame journalists, is only taking half-assed steps to improve domestic issues (not standing up for the unions, no public option, no hardline advocacy for financial sector reform); in summary- what the fuck!
Obviously not as bad as Putin. Still is cathartic to refer to him that way ^_^
