This administration has a horrible record abusing civil liberties & civil rights. Even the blindest, most irrational party loyalists cannot deny this fact. In efforts to apologize for their party they'll simply assert that its not "that" important. Civil liberties aren't that important?
Know why people say there's no difference between Democrats & Republicans?
Whichever party happens to have the Oval Office at the time comes out worshiping the presidency & celebrating all things public sector. When the Republicans had it it was 3 cheers for the ergregious Patriot Act or Homeland Security. Now we have abusive bureaucracies like Obamacare and a record sized Police State. When Republicans held the White House it was 3 cheers for No Child Left Behind and random, abusive centrally imposed regimentations. Now its 3 cheers for Michele Obama setting the school lunch menu.
Gone from the memory of either political party & their fan boys are the times when it was 3 cheers for the Land of the Free.
