CONOR FRIEDERSDORF: Why I Refuse To Vote For Obama. “I don’t see how anyone who confronts Obama’s record with clear eyes can enthusiastically support him. I do understand how they might concluded that he is the lesser of two evils, and back him reluctantly, but I’d have thought more people on the left would regard a sustained assault on civil liberties and the ongoing, needless killing of innocent kids as deal-breakers. Nope.”
Nah, they only care about that stuff when Republicans are in office — but then they care about it a lot, whether it’s actually happening or not, so that sort of evens things out, kinda.
