Obama Facing Criticism From Democrats on Capitol Hill

Being compared to his predecessor


A club of Capitol Hill liberals made life hell for George W. Bush in his second term.

Now the gang is back — and they don't care that this time the president is their guy.

In the last few weeks, some of the loudest anti-Bush voices — including Democratic Reps. Henry Waxman and Ed Markey and Sens. Mark Udall and Ron Wyden – have been demanding answers from the White House on civil liberties, privacy and regulations, some of the same questions that defined Bush's second term.
