Then they turn around an give Obama accolades for 'mission accomplished'.
Even though 19 hijackers were Saudi, and Saudi is the largest financier of Bin laden, and Al Qaeda.
Then that same group calls the last administration war criminals for killing people over seas, and applauds the next one for doing the same, and
I see cognitive dissonance here, guess that is just me, but hell the current one plays cards while he does it.
What a bunch of crap. I've called Obama a war criminal and protector of previous war criminals any number of times here at ATS as well as on other
sites -- as have any number of other actual liberals who are not Obamabots.
That you think all liberals defend Obama always, and that because liberals like myself call shenanigans on trumped-up, substanceless non-issues like
the point of this thread, you think all us liberals do is defend Obama shows how little you seem to understand.
I have never applauded any of Obama's military policies, and -- like yourself, evidently -- I question whether the OBL kill raid actually killed OBL
or whether he has been long dead. Your completely misrepresenting most liberals. If you are talking about Democratic establishment figures, such as
many senators and congress members, and cable pundits who defend or promote Obama's policies -- that's another matter. I entirely agree with you that
this is hypocrisy on their parts. Glenn Greenwald, a very liberal journalist who has been getting more exposure lately, also calls out the hypocrisy
of these folks.
Your argument simply doesn't hold. And continuing to push "scandals" like this one concerning Obama's card playing rather than concentrating on real
grievances against him, diminishes your political capital here and anywhere else you push this dreck. I've told you as much any number of times now,
but you don't seem capable of getting it. You are so wrapped up in your biased, world view that you paint all liberals/progressives/Democrats as one
monolithic group who defend the current president on everything, which simply isn't the case. I've told you to go to threads criticizing the policies
of this administration, or make one yourself on such matters, but you continue fighting your unwinnable battle in this thread. And you continue your
arguments in this thread by making excuses as to why you won't answer the questions of those challenging the validity of this thread you started.
I also find it rich how you like to appropriate phrases from me, yet you clearly don't understand them, because your arguments are baseless.
Suggesting that I am suffering cognitive dissonance because of false claims you ascribe to me and others is just the saddest and most fallacious
garbage. There -- try working 'fallacious' in as another two-bit word in your next post, but check a dictionary first and don't make up specious
claims about my POV in an attempt to use them.
