    I think he's at least glanced at it, since he has commented that it is "deeply flawed."

    You only seem to care about a President using the military, then he sucks.

    How is a group of left-wing journalist suddenly a threat to all the Right-Wing journalism that goes on today? I understand that Conservatives have long claimed liberal-bias in the media, but considering the thousands of journalist in the news industry, I don't see how this small group of 1,000 writers and/or new commentators can possibly be any more influential than the hundreds of Right-Wing newsletters, blogs and online news outlets not to mention the more prominent 24-Hour Conservative talk radio circuit. Seriously, I don't see what the Right sees as such a threat from the Left where journalism is concerned. Seems to me you guys have the eyes and ears of the public pretty much covered.

    Of course, the question is "are they listening and heeding your warnings" or "have more people begun to tune you out"?

    I showed you how Bush said the same thing. We shouldn't allow people into our WH that think that way about our constitution! Call it out when you see it ANYWHERE, not just when you see it in a democratic president. If you want to be consistent and legitimate.

    2, Gitmo is still open

    3. PPACA

    4, NSA domestic spying

    5. Border security

    6. Benghazi, endangering our ambassador by covertly supplying the Syrian rebels with arms from the annex there.

    7. Fast and furious

    8. Support of militant Islamic groups in the ME

    9. Abuse of UN resolution in Libya to protect civilians, as an excuse to conduct regime change

    10. Support for overthrowing the Ukrainian government

    11. Predator drone program

    12. Secret kill list

    And that's not an exhaustive list

    I'm not sure it is secret. It might just be a website or small organization for events and the like. What I saw, it contains a calendar of events, like voter registration day, youth group meeting somewhere, etc. Looks pretty small, although liberal apparently.

    I'm not seeing any grand plan, there. People are free to sign up on lists or whatever. I know I was added to some lists after signing a couple of petitions.

    That's not a legit information source. But even if the story is true, I don't see much there. It looks like a small organization or website or list where a calendar of events is maintained. I was put on some lists a couple of times just from signing a couple of petitions online.

    This doesn't seem like any grand scheme, to me, any more than signing up for news info from Fox News, a rightwing-slanted news organization (I say that, even though I watch Fox, along with other news networks, which is why I can see it's right-slanted, even some of the supposedly straight news stories). Maybe it's more, but without further information from a legit source, it doesn't look like a big deal.
