It’s no secret that I think Barack Obama is immensely better than any Republican office holder as President of the United States.  Any Republican.

It is also no secret that I have been pretty critical of some awful things he has done.  But at the same time I’ve wondered whether or not I’ve been too hasty.  He seems a decent guy, and has been in office only a short time, hounded by sociopaths to his right and an incompetent corporate press unconcerned with doing actual journalism that repeats stupid right wing charges while ignoring more substantive issues.

I have just come across the best discussion of this dilemma that now faces all good Americans.  It is The Case for Distrust, by Chris Bowers.

It’s really good.
