The Obama double standard

Josh Gerstein's article in Politico Thursday, "What if George W. Bush had done that?" is pretty good. Nothing super groundbreaking, but I think he puts together the case fairly well. The article features critics from the left (Glenn Greenwald) and right (Mark Corallo, director of public affairs at the Justice Department from 2002-05), laying out the argument that if Bush had done some of the things Obama has done, he would have been criticized from various sides. The extra-judicial executions is perhaps the strongest example, but the other ones are relevant too.
