Greenwald just compared Obama to Nixon

Filed under: Odds 'n ends — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 1:30 am

Glenn Greenwald in a recent article for The Guardian compares Obama to Nixon (regarding secrecy issues mostly). Click here.

Now why this is interesting to grooygirl is because Glenn is much more in the liberal than conservative camp. Groovygirl likes most of Glenn’s writings because, like Taibbi, he calls out both conservative and liberal administrations on transparency, out-right lies, free press issues, free speech issues, crony capitalism, and infringement on civil liberties. Groovygirl thinks it is on these issues that parts of the liberal and conservative parties will break away for a third-party formation. But, these issues must get so bad in the US that liberals and conservatives are willing to put other major disagreements on the back burner.
