Joe Stack and Self-Determination, & The Difference Between Obama’s Lies and Bush’s Lies

A word on the breaking news, Joseph Stack attacks an IRS office in an airplane, seemingly because he felt like he had no voice in a corrupt government which served the rich and not the people. People lash out when they have no hope or feeling of self-determination and control over their lives, and this is just a particularly explosive example.

The main story, Obama lies vs. Bush lies, and why Bush can lie and break the law and destroy the Constitution with no reaction from his party, his base, or conservatives in general, while Obama can’t afford to run that kind of show because progressives actually care about that stuff.
In other words, Bush got away with lying because he was lying “for us”, from the conservative perspective. When what we progressives want is a more accountable and transparent government which serves the people, Obama can’t claim to be on our side when he lies and makes backroom deals.
