For a while I called Obama Dickhead, but I honestly thought it was dull and uninspired, as did others who let me know. I just never found something to call the guy that was as apt as Bush's Dumbass moniker. It's certainly not for any greater amount of respect or anything.
And from my perspective it seems that all things you speak of come back to Obama sucks. I don't necessarily disagree with them individually or the premise in general, but when I have the sense that it's the end goal you're working toward, as opposed to a conclusion reached, I certainly have to question it. You seem to have little to say about Bush, unless it's to point out something that he was doing better. I started paying a good deal of attention to politics about 20 years ago, and my experience has been that they're both miserable failures and that both of those guys have a great many commonalities; enough that I consider them 16 years of the same failed presidency. When I get the sense that someone considers one greatly superior to the other it really makes me rather suspect.
And my recollection of that whole telco affair was that ATT never offered any resistance to necessitate duress. Some of the telcos requested warrants and backed down when they were told no, but AT&T just opened the door right up to them and said come on in and help yourself. I mean, at least ask for a warrant, even if you're going to fold up immediately. Hell, I asked FBI goons for a warrant even though they were raiding a company that I genuinely despised. "We don't need to show it to you!" Yeah, OK, fine. Go right on in. It's just the minimum amount of effort to not be a door mat.
