    Expecting more of Obama does not equate to "ideological purity", methinks.

    I voted for him twice - I hope and still hope for change.

    However, I remain seriously disappointed.

    His continuation and expansion of unprecedented and dubiously legal foreign policies of rendition, imprisonment and assasination should be troubling for EVERY American.

    Turning the blind eye of Dept. of Justice away from even investigating war crimes,  "cutting deals" with feloneous mortgage banking, aggressively persecuting whistleblowers and escalating the "war" on drugs are grevious short comings.

    Affordable Health Care, ok, a compromise that improves the policy and leaves open hope for an even better future.  However, under cutting it by negotiating the "Grand Bargain" to undermine the foundations of Medicare and Social Security is wrong and demands citizen action to prevent.

    My overall point is this -  Obama could do ALOT more with executive power.  Compare his record of action to Bush, Clinton, Nixon, et. al.   He has taken very little action.

    Yes, I am liberal.  No, I am not satisfied with Obama just being the Un-Rmoney/Un-Bush.
