Obama’s First 100 Days: Madmen, Blunders, Death Defined

obama_lets_socialize

The score thus far: 100 days down, 1361 to go. Then we get another dictator. Greeeeeaaaat. :-/

I’d like to highlight briefly a few articles of note to commemorate history in the making. First, from Antiwar.com, the Madmen have done well:

In his first 100 days, Obama has excused torture, opposed habeas corpus, and demanded more secret government. He has kept Bush’s gulag intact and at least 17,000 prisoners beyond the reach of justice. On April 24, his lawyers won an appeal that ruled Guantanamo prisoners were not “persons” and therefore had no right not to be tortured. His national intelligence director, Adm. Dennis Blair, says he believes torture works. One of his senior officials in Latin America is accused of covering up the torture of an American nun in Guatemala; another is a Pinochet apologist. As Daniel Ellsberg has pointed out, America experienced a military coup under Bush, whose secretary of “defense,” Robert Gates, along with the same warmaking officials, have been retained by Obama.

Fellow blogging buddy Wes at The Humble Libertarian has put together a slighly more humorous (but still somber) list of blunders in the first 100 days:

26. After saying “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times… and then just expect that every country is going to say okay,” journalists discovered that Obama cranks the thermostat in the Oval Office.

LOL, thanks Wes!
