Piling on Friedersdorf
Conner Friedersdorf writes that he will not vote for Obama, because Obama has ordered indefinite detention without trial and killing without trial (including of a US citizen) and because he is responsible for civilians accidentally killed in efforts to kill Al Qaeda operatives and Taliban.
Earlier I commented on how the key issue is "better" not "good". Also I noted that H Truman (and presumably B Obama) have used the N word.
How silly of me to note (below) Atom bomber Harry Truman's use of the n word. I just note that when you rule out voting for someone responsible for the deaths of civilians in war you have ruled out voting for (in reverse chronological order) Bush Jr, Clinton, Bush Sr, Reagan, Ford, Nixon, Johnson, Eisenhower, Truman, F Roosevelt, Hoover, Coolidge, Wilson and T Roosevelt.
