"Do you want to live in a world where your President can incarcerate citizens for no reason beyond political gain?"

Scott Adams, the creator of the Dilbert comic strip, is pissed because Obama has put resources behind medical marijuana prosecutions in California. He has been attacked by readers of The Huffington Post, Daily Kos, Gawker, Mediaite and other "Low Information" sites! He wants Obama fired: "In summary, if President Obama is devoting limited federal resources to go after marijuana dispensaries for no reasons other than political gain, including, for example, attracting campaign funding, he should be fired. If he has a reason for jailing a small businessman, and he chooses not to share it, that too is a firing offense." Furthermore, Adams asserts, "The best way to fire an incumbent president who is running for reelection is to vote for the only candidate with a realistic chance of beating him. If a voter switches from Obama to Romney it causes a two vote difference: one less vote to Obama and one more for Romney. Moving one vote from President Obama to a third party candidate is a one vote difference in the competition between President Obama and Romney." For those who argue that one must always look at the big picture, Adams responds sarcastically, "If President Obama decides to give our nuclear codes to Iran, let's agree to count that as one mistake that should be weighed against all of his good work. For example, there's the time he recycled, and the time he could have lied but didn't. So that's two good things versus one bad thing." Adams asks his critics, "Do you want to live in a world where your President can incarcerate citizens for no reason beyond political gain?" As for his views on Romney, the man he plans to vote for, well, he isn't exactly complimentary. "Romney knows that the electorate is full of idiots and he needs to be a gigantic liar to win their votes. I totally get that. The funniest part is his budget plan that he promises to describe in detail after he gets elected. Dumb people see this as "He has an awesome fiscal plan!" Democrats see it as "He's a liar with no plan!" I see it as "You know I'm a brilliant and experienced turnaround guy. I know how to do this sort of thing. And if I give details now it just paints a target on my back. So chill." Read more here: http://dilbert.com/blog/entry/interesting_day/
