When it comes to civil liberties, Obama has always talked a good game,

and then acted more authoritarian than Bush. He talked about an end to the abuses of the Bush years and an open and transparent government,
yet extended the Fourth-Amendment-shredding Patriot Act, empowered the TSA to produce naked body scans and engage in humiliatingly sexual pat-downs, signed indefinite detention of American citizens into law, claimed and exercised the power to assassinate American citizens without trial, and aggressively prosecuted whistleblowers. Under his watch the U.S. army even produced a document planning for the reeducation of political activists in internment camps. Reeducation camps? In America? And some on the left are still crowing that talking about being in favour of gay marriage makes him "pro civil liberties"€? Is this a joke? --ZeroHedge
