The left attacks Obama

In the person of NY Times liberal columnist Bob Herbert.
Read the whole thing--it's certainly a significant thing for the coming election that there's already discontent on the left concerning Obama's obvious tack to the center/right lately.

But it also tells us just how far to the left, and how unreasonable, some of our "progressive" friends are these days. For example, Herbert writes:

"And there he was [Obama[, in the midst of an election campaign in which the makeup of the Supreme Court is as important as it has ever been, agreeing with Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas that the death penalty could be imposed for crimes other than murder. What was the man thinking?"

Well, Mr. Herbert, as I believe Justice Alito said in his dissent concerning that case, apparently some of you want to tell us that no matter how many victims a rapist has, no matter how young they were, no matter how much violence was done to them, the death penalty can NEVER be justified.

Really? What are you thinking?
