Back when the Pope of Hope was still a mere candidate for the Presidential nomination, there were a few voices in the wilderness who refused to believe in the audacity of the hype. I should know, as I was one of them - whether it was in terms of his views on what we call foreign policy or his apparent fetish for neoliberal economic advisors.
As I said, there were other voices in the wilderness. Simply keep in mind that whatever Obama has pursued with regard to military interventions, torture, economic policy, etc., should come as no surprise. The warning signs were there back in early 2008 for anyone who was willing to look.
