I'm Disillusioned by the People Who Are Disillusioned by the People Who Are Disillusioned With Obama
Has anyone yet caught Clooney openly and ardently defending the NDAA and its onerous indefinite detention provisions, that Obama is now defending to the hilt?
Or the secret kill list? The secret kill list article:
Or the position of his Justice Department that the banksters are unprosecutable?
Or Obama's stepped up program against medical marijuana clinics and users of medical marijuana, many of whom are Veterans and extremely ill?
Or his full-speed-ahead support of Shell Oil's Arctic offshore drilling?
Or his rubber stamping of Department of Energy policy regarding nuclear power in the post-Fukushima world?
Or his scuttling of the Copenhagen climate conference?
Or his intentional torture of Bradley Manning?
Or his unprecedented war on whistleblowers?
Of course they haven't
Clooney and his ilk cannot defend those policies, so he and the others avoid them or plead ignorance, like Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz.
They are wearing blinders.
So, yes, Romney is the worse of two evils.
Unfortunately, my spiritual beliefs preclude me from voting for war criminals, so nothing Clooney says will influence me. Perhaps others.
Meanwhile, I'm content working hard to convince people NOT to vote for Mitt Romney.
And getting ready to vote for some Democrats. Just not the war criminal one.
