Then Obama went further: "and I don't think the American people would expect me as commander in chief, not to be concerned about information that could compromise their missions or might get them killed."

Republican-Speak translation: Worrying about the Fourth Amendment -- which is on the books to protect Americans from unreasonable search and seizure, and requires that even presidents get warrants -- is anathema.   That is to say, unlike Progressives, whom Obama once described as "sanctimonious," he worries about America.

He also reminded everyone that he is "commander in chief."  

This is an old Republican trick.   He is saying that patriots don't question their commanders in chief.   Republican-Speak etiquette demands that commanders in chief NEVER explain anything.   Bush never explained anything.   He gave very few press conferences.   Obama learned from this.   He has given even fewer press conferences than Bush.

Since you support Obama right or wrong, you should join Obamaheads everywhere in encouraging him to switch political parties.  

You should consider how much easier life would be for him, if he were a Republican.   He wouldn't have to make any more promises that he had no intention of keeping.   He could build even more nuclear plants, extend even more gas lines, and subsidize fracking everywhere without worrying about environmentalists.   Whistle-blowers could still be arrested as traitors, tortured, and imprisoned indefinitely "for their own good" without guilt.   He could kill more American citizens (including children) without any legal oversight other than his own.  

Best of all, in the name of national security, he could join Republicans in ignoring all the amendments to the constitution except two: the one that says corporations are people, and the one that says yes, even four-year-olds have the right to carry weapons of mass destruction to school, to libraries, to lavatories.

He could lie like a Republican.   He could bully like a Republican.

He could steal from the poor and the middle class to give to the rich like a Republican.   He could continue to wage war everywhere in the world with only a nod of his head, without congressional approval, without the support of the American people whose blood he could spill and treasure he could spend because --  he wants to.  

In other words, instead of being a fake Democrat, he could be a real Republican.  

And Obamaheads would still love him.

Love is blind.
