Agreed - it's almost as if it would be better to have a corrupt Republican than a corrupt Democrat in office. If McCain or Romney were elected and did the same things as Obama (protecting big banks, big health insurance companies, continuing privacy intrusions, Bush-era torture, etc.) the outrage from the "liberals" and "progressives" would be deafening, for good reason - and maybe would galvanize the populace to stand against these things and prevent their occurence in the future.
Instead, if a Democrat like Obama is in office, too many on the left are blind to his actions and give it a pass.
