For all Civil Libertarians: Why Barack Obama should resign

I can't believe the stupid sonofabitch actually did this. 
He went to the residence of an American citizen to stage a Pro-Theocracy photo-op. 

Go here.  Written by a respected law professor. 
“Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.”

When taking office, the President does not swear to create jobs. He does not swear to “grow the economy.” He does not swear to institute “fairness.” The only oath the President takes is this one:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

By sending — literally — brownshirted enforcers to engage in — literally — a midnight knock at the door of a man for the non-crime of embarrassing the President of the United States and his administration, President Obama violated that oath. You can try to pretty this up (It’s just about possible probation violations! Sure.), or make excuses or draw distinctions, but that’s what’s happened. It is a betrayal of his duties as President, and a disgrace.
Why are the streets not packed with angry mobs with pitchforks and torches??

This is the picture that should cost Obama his job.  End of story. 

You know what?  I didn't particularly like the art installation known as "Piss Christ".  I didn't like the painting of the Virgin Mary made of elephant crap.  I didn't like Michael Moore's movie "Capitalism".  (It should've been called "Mercantilism", or maybe "Too Big To Fail".)  I don't like the Richter mirror hanging in the Dallas Museum Of Art.  I think it's a ripoff. 
Here's another dirty little secret:  I didn't like the new Batman movie. 

In the USA, we don't bring this stuff up for a vote.  If someone creates something we don't like, we don't try to have the creators silenced.  We DO and we SHOULD keep them from getting any government funding, but that should apply to everybody. 

Is Barack now going to go after everyone who submitted art for "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day"? 

If you don't have the right to offend, you don't have the right to speak. 

What a despicable, pitiful little man.

Great minds think alike. I posted the same link.

And did you notice how the media 'just happened' to be there? What a crock.

You nailed it. obama is "a despicable, pitiful little man."

This happened in Cerritos, Calif which is policed by the L.A. county sheriff.
My understanding is this guy is on probation for a federal conviction. Why is a whole squad of LASD deputies calling on him in the middle of the night to take him in for "voluntary" questioning?
The answer appears to be: Lee Baca, the LA sheriff is as big of a jerk as I found him to be when I last conversed with him in 1974 when he was a lieutenant on that department.

You guys are way too angry.

The guy voluntarily went.

He had media outside his house since the day of the violence. Of course they were there.

For all you know, he called the sheriff or police or brown shirt bastards and said, "Could you come get me out of my house so I don't get mobbed or killed?"

Nothing is ever black and white, but if I were the guy who made this video and had caused the international craziness that he caused I'd be hiding in a hole 200 feet deep and begging for a police escort to go outside.

Religious zealots are a crazy group of people.

Interesting spin though.

Gar - I'm not angry, just sad.

You say the guy went voluntarily. I see someone surrounded by at least five government authorities in the middle of the night. If he was worried about his personal safety he could have easily slipped out of the house (for example, in the trunk of a car).

All the news reports I've seen indicate that he was taken in to investigate a possible probation violation. Do you really think this is how anyone else who might have violated his or her probation is treated?

Couple this with the Patriot Act and the DOJ's ruling that the government can kill U.S. citizens without a trial, and you have a clear picture of our Constitutional rights being relentlessly eroded - by both parties.
