* refusing to prosecute those responsible for torture from the previous regime;

* hiring one of the prime torturers as an advisor on national security matters, then nominating him to head the CIA;

* claiming his right to order the assassination of anyone, anywhere, at any time, on his say-so;

* insisting on including in the current national defense budget act an effective repeal of habeas corpus and Posse Comitatus;

* prosecuting whistle blowers about torture, rather than the torturers themselves, and ensuring that military units guilty of crimes against humanity are protected;

* running the most secretive regime in U.S. history;

* deporting more undocumented immigrants, and consequently breaking up more families, than all previous presidents combined;

* bailing out the biggest crooks in history, the Wall Street banksters, using an enormous injection of taxpayer money to do so, while refusing to prosecute even one of them, and then allowing them not only to keep their jobs despite abundant evidence of their corrupt and fraudulent practices, but allowing them to reap unconscionable rewards and vast bonuses, and then keeping silent while the Fed relieved them of their bad paper (junk bonds) at face value, thus essentially putting the full faith and credit of the United States on the line for what are essentially junk bonds;

* allowing underwater mortgages to destroy their mortgagees' lives, and then refusing to prosecute even the most blatantly fraudulent evictions that were based on robo-signed mortgages;

* coordinating a nationwide conspiracy to physically attack and undermine peaceful demonstrations against the corruption of Wall Street;

* expanding the Global War On Terror to include at least six countries with which we are officially not at war;

* expanding the presence of CIA death squads to between 70 and 124 countries;

* pushing more "free trade" agreements modeled on NAFTA and the WTO, which will cost Americans many thousands more of their jobs;

* refusing to employ any significant amount of stimulus during the worst recession since the 1930s, instead opting to be a Hooverite "deficit hawk";

* offering up earned insurances [Medicare and Social security], paid by the poor and middle class, thereby putting these insurances on the altar of fiscal responsibility, for sacrifice, even though they had no part in creating the crash, for which he has absolved and rewarded the trillionaire banking community that was responsible;
