I will hit the google. But you have to admit there was nowhere close to this type of reaction to Bush Jr and Iraq...perhaps on MSNBC but I venture to
say that you didn't hear much of it on FOX, Drudge, Breitbart or from most other conservative pundits if at all.
I will double check my facts though and if I am in fact wrong I'll tuck my tail and admit it.
No, I agree. But ask them now with hindsight and many will tell you they were wrong about the Patriot Act, it was too much authority and they should
have known it was destined for permanency. Ask them about DHS and they will say they should have known it was going to evolve into 1.6 billion rounds
of hollow points and a thousand armored vehicle domestic army.
People have woken up to the lies of Bush and his false pretenses for NSA wire taps and data collection. I would think you would rejoice and celebrate
the awakening of people. Instead, you are doing EXACTLY what they did in 2004, clamoring on and on about why it's not really a lie and that while you
know your guy lies he only has well intentions.
That's the same line of thinking the Bushies spewed, only this time, it's you having truth stuck in your face and clinging to a blind hope.
Those who say all politicians lie, you are vastly right to a mjor degree! But instead of excusing the liars, hold them accountable and stop supporting
them. We are a strong people and we deserve the truth! It's about respect. When you lie to those who employ you, you get fired! It's about integrity
and it matters just as much now as it did in 2005, what has happened since then that the many who didn't support Bush because he was an obvious liar
now have the next obvious liars back? Obviously liars don't bother you today, what changed? Why do you support an obvious liar when just ten years ago
you despised liars?
If it takes us to vote 1000 politicians in and right out of office before we find an honest one, that's EXACTLY what we should do!
And for the last time, Bush and Obama are of the exact same ilk. Neither is conservative and neither is liberal. Calling Obama liberal is incredibly
naive when you actually look up the definition. Liberal means you let the people assume liberty! Progressive and liberal are diametrically opposed
philosophies and yet Obama claims both! And guess what, Bush did the EXACT same thing.
Name one policy decision other than healthcare, and I think if Bush could have had the tongue to sell it to the people he certainly would have done
the exact same bill, that you believe Obama has done differently than Bush?
Afghanistan? Still there.
Patriot Act? While candidate Obama said he disagreed with the Patriot Act one of the first things he did in office was not only strengthen it, he made
it permanent so the people wouldn't be reminded that it was sold to the people as temporary. Very Cheney move.
Iran? Bush had the same opportunity to disarm North Korea as Obama has with Iran. Under Bush North Korea got a bomb, and Obama is doing the exact same
strategy with Iran. That situation is so completely identical it's mind boggling.
Immigration? Obama is pushing for the same immigration bill that Bush tried to pass in 2007!
NSA? Oh yeah, Cheney's influence must be that of Darth Vador's because I can see no daylight between Obama's NSA and Cheneys...
Benghazi? The Bush administration would have handled it the same way as Obama's though I think Rumsfeld would have sold the "what does it matter at
this point?" line better than Clinton; but does Rumsfeld acting prowess trumping Hilary's really matter all that much?
The bail outs for the rich? Bush put that on a tee, with then Senator Obama's vote, for Obama to inherit and again, strengthen, with a second, and
then third round of bailouts for the rich!
They are the same. The vocal prods with which they stir the masses are different, but the policies are identical and neither subscribes to the
people's real positions; they simply lie and tell us their new rules, laws, regulations, taxes, and social programs are inline with the people's
I thought the Bush supporters were bad, but the Obama supporters had 8 years of the exact same type of governance to wake them up too. They are not
Hamilton vs. Jefferson, or even Kennedy vs Nixon. They are Hogan vs. Macho Man.
Wake up and stop advocating support for these men. Supporting Obama is the same thing as supporting Bush.
