Time for Obama to pander even harder to his radical left-wing base.
The American Civil Liberties Union is giving President Barack Obama no time to kick back and celebrate after he won reelection last week calling on the president to keep promises that were ignored or undelivered in his first term.
The group took out a full-page ad in Sunday’s New York Times, congratulating the president on four more years, but saying it’s time for Obama to “meet unmet promises” and “lead America into an era that expands freedom.”
Specifically, the ACLU lays out three areas of focus: closing Guantanamo, standing up for a woman’s right to have an abortion and rescinding “anti-immigrant federal programs and policies.”
Though the ad says Obama accomplished “a lot” in his first term, it also notes that the Department of Homeland Security has carried out a record number of deportations and, on Guantanamo, says it’s time for Obama to keep the “first promise” he made as president.
