Why weren't all you diehard conservatives concerned about all this BS when Bush was in office and instituted the patriot act.
That's where all this **** stems from and the neocon Obama has fallen right in line! A bit late now eh?
Those of us that did express our concerns were labeled unpatriotic, terrorist sympathizers, commies and people like you and tulip walkers, here on
I think my sig expresses it quite clearly!
edit on 13-3-2013 by olaru12 because: (no reason given)
First of all, the constant comparisons back to a former President who has been out of office for over 4 years now are cheap and weak. Really sad to
keep seeing, honestly. The reason is simple. To keep using that as the tired old stand-by it's become, indicates a very serious lack of anything else
to add. I mean, drawing from errors made so many years ago to justify or make less the bad behavior of today is incredible to see done.
Having gotten that out of the way.... You're assuming far more than you can be in any position to assume about me or about anyone else. I wasn't ON
ATS in 2003 when it began. I wasn't here for the Bush years. If I had been, you'd know that while I did vote for him twice (Lesser of evils....and I
was NOT voting for who ran against him. My thinking was different in those days on lesser evils), I also bashed the living crap out of Bush's
policies when they were wrong.
Specifically, I DID call the Patriot act foolish, short sighted and ignorant. Namely for the very reason we see right now. However badly needed it may
have been for what appeared to be imminent war on our own soil then? It wouldn't go away and FUTURE PRESIDENTS would have that same power ..whatever
Bush turned out to do with it. It was wrong then..It's wrong now..and I said so.
I also screamed bloody murder about TARP and the bailouts. So please, don't assume those who dislike the screw-up we have in the White House now
somehow kissed the ground Bush walked on. It's a VERY ignorant assumption (2 strikes in one sentence) and in this case, it couldn't be further from
the truth in claims if it had meant to be.
