Hope ‘n Change, RIP

An addendum to my previous post on civil liberties under attack: now add the chilling effect on free speech during the Obama years thanks to revelations that the IRS is targeting groups for their political leanings and the Justice Department is spying on the Associated Press.

To what extent President Obama is involved I presume will be revealed in the coming days. While I’m sure the fervent supporters of this administration will put on their partisan blinders, this should serve as a reminder to everyone else that this administration has absolutely failed in its vow to create an “unprecedented level of openness in Government.”

Instead of hope and change, we see a government behaving just as it did under FDR, JFK, Nixon, Clinton and Bush.

Mr. President, this is why Americans are cynical about government.
