The Daily Dish: "Pressuring The President"

Andrew is a bit defensive here, but then again he knows Barack pays attention to him. In the most recent issue of Rolling Stone to feature the an interview with the president, Obama mentions Sullivan by name.

FWIW from someone largely likeminded, I'd like to see Andrew be a bit more critical of Barack.
I'm not saying that Sullivan lets everything slide, but perhaps he lets the president get away with a little bit too much

Indecision Forever: "Quote Unquote: Chomsky on Obama vs. Bush"

Quote Unquote: Chomsky on Obama vs. Bush:
Noam Chomsky compare our two most recent Commanders-in-Chief
.

"If the Bush administration didn't like somebody, they'd kidnap them and send them to torture chambers. If the Obama administration decides they don't like somebody, they murder them."

.
On the down side, we're slowly turning into an unrecognizable dystopian mirror of everything we have long claimed to despise. On the plus side, though, we're getting more streamlined.
The whole thing is available at DemocracyNow, and Noam is pretty much on the money as usual: http://www.democracynow.org/2012/5/14/noam_chomsky_on_wikileaks_obamas_targeted#transcript.
