Willingly ignorant

I quote, from the beginning of Sullivan's fifth paragraph;
"Cheney and Bush, unlike any presidency in American history, have dangerously pushed constitutional government to the brink of collapse."

Pure horseshit.

The man either hasn't studied American History at all, or is willfully omitting pieces. I have only to point toward that excrement FDR to prove my point. And I can say with great confidence that if it hadn't been Roosevelt pushing through onerous bullshit, expanding the executive power of the Presidency, we might not be having this conversation at all, right now. There are almost countless others, and should be known by anyone who has studied American History in the slightest.

The rest of Sullivan's piece is filled with more of same;
"But none of this compares to the task of restoring the rule of law and Constitutional balance. Unlike McCain, Obama has never wavered on torture or habeas corpus or on keeping the executive branch under the law. His deep understanding and awareness of the Constitution eclipses McCain's."

Deep understanding of the Constitution? Uh, no. He doesn't even have the remotest grasp of the document, nor the limitations of government that are proscribed therein, and there is ample proof of this, available to anyone who cares to look with a descriminating eye.
"...until this unlikely fellow with the funny ears and strange name and exotic biography emerged on the scene, I had begun to wonder if it was possible at all. I had almost given up hope, and he helped restore it"

Ah, Hope from the Messiah. Getting caught in the cult of personality, I see. Make sure you don't gag on it while you're down there, like Chris Matthews.

He is right about one thing, however, and we can agree on it;
"We cannot be a beacon to the world until we have reformed ourselves"

Reform. I suppose it's all in how you might define that word, so I'd like to define it as a reform toward being an American. Proffering ideals like prosperity and freedom. Things you wouldn't know much about, since those values aren't anything you'd care to hold, at all, Andrew.

Andrew Sullivan is a complete douchebag. I quit listening or reading anything he had to say about a year ago.

Forgot to add.

Obama's view of the Constitution is a disgusting twisted perversion of the document. It is blasphemy really.

It's been apparent to me for the last, get this, 12 years that the internal, fifth column of the country has been clearly winning.

This latest bit is just part of a systemic evisceration of the fundamentals that this country was founded upon.

Honest to God, I'm witnessing the last of America here, now, getting flushed down the toilet. The crowd is roaring for more too, cheering the whole, foul mess of it all.

Take photos. Write it all down. Teach your kids.

I don't know what else to do.

The Manchurian Media's disinformation campaign is just about complete. They twist and pervert and make a LOT of money in the process.
