Hardline national security leftist Democrat with UK Guardian now says Obama sickens him

Offers Obama "losing us [Democrats] the next election" to Republicans over privacy rights 

Excerpted UKGuardian, Jeff Jarvis, "As a Democrat, I am disgusted with President Obama -- I voted for Obama reluctantly, but never did I imagine he would become another Richard Nixon":
What are you thinking, Mr President? Is this really the legacy you want for yourself: the chief executive who trampled rights, destroyed privacy, heightened secrecy, ruined trust, and worst of all, did not defend but instead detoured around so many of the fundamental principles on which this country is founded? And I voted for you. 
Never did I imagine that you would instead become another Richard Nixon: imperial, secretive, vindictive, untrustworthy, inexplicable. 
As an internet user, I am most fearful of the impact of your wanton destruction of privacy and the resulting collapse of trust in the net and what that will do to the freedom we have enjoyed in it as well as the business and jobs that are being built atop it. 
And as a Democrat, I worry that you are losing us the next election, handing an issue to the Republicans that should have been ours: protecting the rights of citizens against the overreach of the security state.
Editor's comment - Big difference. Richard Nixon was actually born in the United States of America.

How the fuck is this a story. Read the authors biography:

He's a journalism professor somewhere; how is his opinion or changes in it of any note to anyone.

Why did you post this rather than the important news of the arrest of the two murderers of the Okinawa vet?

Oh. Because you don't give a fuck about him and his death. That's right.
