Excellent Glenn Greenwald article: "My friend the President"

Those of us who are exasperated by the unrelenting and unreasonable support that Obama enjoys, despite his disastrous policies and serial promise-breaking, might enjoy this article:

Greenwald makes a great observation at the end about what drives all the senseless Obama worship, likening it to other personality cults in politics, namely those surrounding George Bush and Sarah Palin.

A great read.

The neoconservatives who worship General David Petraeus may not be too pleased with this--a briefing Petraeus prepared for his boss, Admiral Mike Mullen, on the regional problems being raised by Israel's intransigence on the settlements issue. actually i am doing mcse training and If Israel were taking a moral position that upset the regional Arabs, like defending its right to exist (a limited strike in self-defense against the Hamas rocketers in Gaza, for example), I'd say that Arab disapproval would be a geo-strategic cost that we, as Israel's ally, would have to live with.

Greenwald ALWAYS writes an excellent article!

I have often found it amazing that "Salon" keeps him on. They must like to churn it up a bit among their readers. Go Glenn!

Yes

I think you're right. The comments section under this article is by no means one big cheering section; apparently, Greenwald gets on many of the readers' nerves.
