Why was Obama so soft on sexual predators?

The Daily Caller ran the first part of a new series based upon opposition research by Obama's 2004 opponent for the US senate, Jack Ryan. Ryan had to prematurely drop out of the race due to a scandal in his personal life, but his game plan for criticizing Obama based on his actual record is still with us and folks, There's GOLD in them thar' hills!

You can peruse the article at your leisure in order to examine the voting record of a dedicated, hard-core leftist radical for yourself, but one particular point brought up in Ryan's research stunned even me... "

"In 1999, Obama was the only member of the state Senate to vote against a bill that would have prohibited convicted sex abusers who had targeted family members or persons younger than 18 from getting out of jail early for “good behavior.” Two years later, he would vote “present” on the Sexually Violent Persons Commitment Act, which was designed to toughen laws on prisoners and criminals.

Obama summarized his feelings on new crime legislation in an interview with the Copley News Service in 1999. “It’s very hard for elected officials to resist a bill that enhances penalties for drug offenses because nobody’s pro-drug,” Obama said at the time. “For the same reason, it’s very hard to vote against a bill that makes life tougher on sex offenders. Nobody likes sex offenders.”

So it's plain to see that this ideologically driven president has no problem placing his preferred worldview over the safety of others. Too bad Ambassador Christopher Stevens had to find this out the hard way.

Of course, the other angle on this story is the reason that Jack Ryan had to withdraw. Obama henchmen David Axelrod somehow managed to convince a judge to unseal Ryan's divorce records, though both Ryan and his ex opposed this; a blatant and unprecedented violation of basic privacy. Axelrod has done something similar to Obama's primary opponent. These amoral (okay, immoral), "never-let-a-crisis-go-to-waste) characters will stop at nothing.
