Leftists Protest Obama ("Worse than Bush")

A group which includes such prominent leftist actors and intellectuals as Noam Chomsky, James Cromwell of"L.A. Confidential," and Cindy Sheehan has issued a statement blasting Obama's" crimes" in foreign policy. It will be amusing to see what conservatives, who typically depict Obama as a weak-kneed peacenik, will rationalize this:
"In some respects this is worse than Bush,"worse than Bush....First, because Obama has claimed the right to assassinate American citizens whom he suspects of 'terrorism,' merely on the grounds of his own suspicion or that of the CIA, something Bush never claimed publicly."
