    To silence potential "whistleblowers?"

    That's what Jake Tapper wants to know...

    I think we all should want to know...

    I've got to say, Jake Tapper continues to impress me by asking tough questions, of both the Left and the Right.

    As for the story, kind of disturbing if you ask me...

    This is one more negative element of the Obama presidency. It ranks with his refusal to even discuss the counterproductive War on Drugs, his appointment of a weak and absolutely inert Attorney General who has ignored the crimes of the Bush Administration, his retention and promotion of Summers and Geithner, his retention and enhancement of the Patriot Act. Those things alone exempt Obama from the category of good presidents. But compared with such enemies of the middle class as Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush Obama is a notable improvement.

    That fact combined with his likeable personality make him a far better choice than any of his Republican opponents. But the bottom line is the sad state of American politics in which the criterion for selecting a President is that of the lesser evil.

    Lets just say that many Americans believe that Obama's promise to conduct government openly was a tad overstated.

    I continue to be vastly underimpressed by the man's policies on a number of various areas of governance.
