Who's shredding the Constitution now?

For 8 years, Bush was accused of "shredding the Constitution". It was another reason the media gave for wanting us to elect a "constitutional law" professor (one of the many jobs in which Obama appears to have "failed up").

Here's another example of "change" from last week:
A federal appeals court ruled Friday that three men who had been detained by the U.S. military for years without trial in Afghanistan had no recourse to American courts. The decision was a broad victory for the Obama administration in its efforts to hold terrorism suspects overseas for indefinite periods without judicial oversight.

Notice how pursuing the identical policy on indefinite overseas detention made Bush a fascist but makes Obama victorious.
