He actually has differentiated himself from Bush. We are now shipping arms to our enemies, we are using drones more often to wack a terrorist than capturing them for intelligence purposes. There are more drone strikes under Obama then Bush, and Obama has no problem using them against citizens without due process. So there are big big differences if you pay attention.
I am glad Trek has gone back to doing social commentary, it throws the ideas out there, you don't have to agree with it, but it throws the questions out there for it to be discussed.
While I disagree with your first paragraph (vehemently), I don't think this is the right place for the discussion at this time.
That being said, Trekkies are now getting exactly what we want, a relevant and topical Star Trek that will be popular for everybody while still holding up it's ideals. Times are good!
