    There's a reason why all the issues Greenwald raises devolve into arguments about Obama. That's how Greenwald frames every issue. He has some kind of need to make everything about Obama personally as if Obama is personally listening to your phone call and waterboarding Bradley Manning for kicks. It distracts from the real issue over and over again. I think he could get a lot more Obama supporters to take action on what he writes about if it wasn't so obvious that he has a secondary agenda he's fixated on. He really needs to decide which agenda is more important to him because his need to personalize the issue on Obama every time undermines everything else he writes.

      His political biases are not the issue. Whether he drinks coffee or tea, with or without sugar or cream, is not the issue.

      Guess you TOTALLY missed the ENTIRE point of this diary - so completely that it cannot be accidental.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!

        on the important issues Greenwald writes about is the point. So when Greenwald's personal political beefs make it more difficult to make change happen then that very much is the issue.
