Found this and put it out because I thought it was quite fitting on this day.


In honor of Barack Obama's second term, or if you judge by the policies, George W's fourth consecutive term as President. Here are 100 reasons to point out that 8 years of Obama, is really 16 years of George W. Bush.


1. Iraq - We should have known in 2008 that we wouldn't see any real change from the Obama Administration. Despite campaigning for the U.S. Senate in 2004 on a platform of voting against Bush's war budgets, when he became a Senator, Obama voted for every single one of Bush's requests to continue funding war in the Middle East. Apparently, his streak of broken promises started long before campaigning for the White House (and we'll get to those later down the list).

Then right off the bat in February of 2009, a mere month into his administration, President Obama revealed a phony withdrawal plan that would take three months longer than promised, and leave a whopping 50,000 troops in Iraq (out of the 135,000 that were there when Obama assumed office). Eight months later in October 2009, 131,000 troops remained in Iraq, and Obama sent another 1000 at the request of theater commanders in Iraq. Seriously.

2. First Surge in Afghanistan - Think Iraq was bad? It gets better! Mr. (Blind) Hope and (Regime) Change kicked off his presidency with a 17,000 troop surge to Afghanistan in February of 2009. 17,000! Don't defend him. Don't say it was necessary to help win the war there. You would not have defended Bush and you know it. Mr. Obama started his presidency by radically escalating Bush's war.

3. Second Surge in Afghanistan - But wait- there's more! By December of 2009, less than a year into his presidency, Obama decided to outdo even himself and send another whopping 30,000 troops to Afghanistan! By this point, Al-Qaeda was scattered and devastated. Our troops were overseas fighting someone else's civil war, not defending our freedoms or our safety.

4. Phony Afghan Withdrawal - In June of 2011, Obama announced a "troop withdrawal" from Afghanistan, and true to form, it was as phony as his Iraq withdrawal. Even if he stays on schedule and makes the most "radical" withdrawal on the table by the end of 2012-- 30,000 troops-- there would still be more than twice as many troops as there were in January 2009 when Obama took office. Only in the Orwellian world of U.S. foreign policy could something like that be called a withdrawal.

5. The Rise of Drone Warfare - The Obama Administration's continued and extensive use of weaponized aerial drones to bomb enemy targets in countries throughout the Middle East (sometimes resulting in the deaths of dozens of civilians at a time when the drone operators or intelligence make a mistake) has touched off a drone arms race with the rest of the world, most notably China. Great. Just great.

I would say it goes back way further than that. Who pulls Bush's strings, anyway?

That's your answer to all this. And it is a deep, nasty rabbit hole so choose wisely before diving in. IMHO.

Quoted for truth.

Since ole St. Ronnie, hasn't it just been a the same turd with a different letter behind their name? I mean the policies, broad stroke here, have been much the same since St. Ronnie. Bad policies.

If you're looking near term, Barry is the same as old Georgie.

People that compare apples and oranges usually don't make sense.

You can blame this on the MSM. The liberal media far outnumber the conservative media so they can paint Bush as a super bad president and at the same time not say squat about Obama. I think a good testament to the public's growing awareness to this inconsistency is that despite the media blackout on Obama's Bush policies he still ended up with a very low approval rating in his first term.
