Make It Go Viral

Glenn Greenwald, here, cries, as in shouts, in the wilderness about the president's blunder in declaring Manning guilty before his trial. It must be a blunder because Obama is not only not stupid nor ignorant, he is a recognized constitutional scholar.

But the blunder is the just the tip of the iceberg of the president's failings. All the other points Greenwald makes about Obama not bringing previous war criminals to trial need to be passed on, indeed shouted out.

In the current Internet lingo I guess that's called "going viral".

This is the kind of post I had not anticipated writing when I was beating the tub for Obama's election in 2008. It pains me to write about these things, but Obama has to learn that his supporters are not stupid and know that he's taking them to be suckers, just like his predecessor did.
