CurrentTV: Obama Civil Liberties Record 'Worse' Than Bush Admin CurrentTV's "The Young Turks" lamented that a "promising" President Obama has failed the progressive agenda. "This is a lost presidency," Mark Thompson said. "He was a constitutional law professor," Ana Kasparian argued before she lamented his harsh stance on drones. "He's been worse than the Bush administration," Kasparian continued with an added "here, here" from the panel. Other contributors agreed that it's possible the President got into office and had a "dang" factor that drives his aggressive national security stance.
