Say it with me: PRESIDENT OBAMA!!! - Unbeliever's Land
...The continuing chronicles...
Say it with me: PRESIDENT OBAMA!!!
From years to months to weeks to days to hours: At long, long last, the tyrannical rule of George W Bush ends today.

Eight years of war crimes, cronyism, and illegalities too numerous to count, OVER.

I know that Obama faces a nearly impossible task, in undoing the damage Bush has done.  I know that he needs every possible vote in Congress to pull off even a small fraction of what is necessary.

But I also know that if Obama doesn't find SOME way to prosecute the guilty parties from the previous administration, he will be complicit in their crimes.  And without a firm line being drawn, the country will NEVER recover.

Sometimes, the only way to "move forward" is to be WILLING to face the past...

Yep. And it would also be nice not to have created a history in which we impeach for finessing confession of consensual adult sex, threaten impeachment for spying on and dirty-tricking US political rivals, praise the perpetrators of Iran-Contra as American heroes and just want to forget about torturing brown folks at home and abroad and locking Us and non-US people up without recourse to standard procedures and grabbing all sorts of legal procedure by the nuts and....

As exhibits of US priorities go, that hasn't been pretty.
