Jon Stewart on Obama’s executive power record

Salon
by Glenn Greenwald

06/16/10

When ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero last week addressed the progressive conference America’s Future Now, he began by saying: ‘I’m going to start provocatively … I’m disgusted with this president.’ Last night, after Obama’s Oval Office speech, Jon Stewart began his show with an 8-minute monologue on Obama’s executive power and civil liberties record which, in essence, provided just some of the reasons why Romero’s strong condemnation is so justified. None of this will be remotely new to any readers here, but it’s still nice to see its being distilled so clearly by a voice which even the most hardened Obama loyalists have decided is a credible and trustworthy one (at least when he’s mocking Sarah Palin and exposing Fox News; we’ll see what reaction this provokes from them, if any)...
