Are we in the fourth term of the Bush Presidency?
Obama administration has decided that Dzokhar Tsarnaev, who became a US citizen in Sept 2012, will be questioned without the benefit of the Miranda warning of his right to remain silent and have a lawyer present based on the “Public Safety” exemption. Anybody remember the “fierce urgency of now” that Obama used to talk about? Anybody remember all the leftist hysteria about Bush dictatorship and shredding of the constitution? All seem such quaint concepts now that a Democrat is in the White House.
This wouldn’t be such an uncomfortable proposition if it wasn’t for the precedence of this administration in killing US citizens abroad, as well as the reluctance to unequivocally state that they will not kill US citizen on US soil. There is a word that describes all this and it is “aristagogue”. It describes those who gain power or prestige by playing upon the vanity, prejudices and insecurities of those who see themselves as our best and brightest, or who wish to be so seen by others.
