Like Rats From A Sinking Ship....

From Politico

The top official at the American Civil Liberties Union seems to be losing patience with President Barack Obama and his administration.

Speaking at a conference of liberal activists Wednesday morning, ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero didn’t mince his words about the administration’s handling of civil liberties issues.

“I’m going to start provocatively … I’m disgusted with this president,” Romero told the America’s Future Now breakout session, according to blogger Marcy Wheeler of

In an interview with POLITICO, Romero confirmed the gist of the quote, though he emphasized it wasn’t intended as an ad hominem attack.

“I’m not disgusted at President Obama personally. It’s President Obama’s policies on civil liberties and national security issues I’m disgusted by. It’s not a personal attack,” Romero said.
I am guessing that he is talking about all of the evil Bush policies that he has continued (no sunset for the Patriot Act, increased drone attacks in Afghanistan etc.) and for all the other shit he promised to do; like not closing Gitmo, not giving KSM a trial in NY,
If he starts losing guys like this, then I am guessing that he is already a "lame duck" and it is all over for his presidency but the shoutin'
