Am I exaggerating? Here are some examples of what the Obama Administration has done:
-Escalated the Afghan war
-Continued our occupation of Iraq
-Launched a military attack in Libya without any congressional authority.
-Bullied "liberal" Dems into voting for war budget.
-Announced that the president has the authority to condemn people, including US citizens, to death (via assassination).
-Enunciated a policy whereby people can be imprisoned permanently, without due process.
-Announced that the "extraordinary rendition" program is still operative.
-Kept open Guantanamo, Bagram, and an unknown number of other sites holding untried prisoners.
-Refused to prosecute, or even to investigate, Cheney and other higher ups admittedly responsible for torture.
-Launched a major campaign against government whistle-blowers, including the shameful abuse of Bradley Manning.
-Endorsed the Bush policy of unwarranted electronic snooping on the communications of Americans.
-Forced passage of a Health Care Bill drafted by industry--refusing even to consider single payer.
