Ah... don't mind me... It's been a long day tending carrots.. lol..
Yes, what is most remarkable is how opposite Obama has come to be vs. Bush in some ways, while being a 4th term relative to the change after Clinton
in others. Obama took Bush's coldest and most ruthless war policies of targeted assassination overseas, drone reliance for war on and off
'traditional' battlefields, and right into otherwise peaceful villages (read..populated civilian neighborhoods, if they were doing here what we're
doing in nations we aren't at war with over there) as well as playing loose around things like Constitutional protections of innocence before guilt.
That's where they may as well be 4 terms with slightly worse policies in my personal opinion for other Obama ideas recently.
On the other hand, they are totally opposite in that Bush couldn't do so much as look cross eyed at someone out of sheer fatigue, not anger, and not
have it reported and held accountable for it in one way or the other, to near absurd levels. Bush skated on accountability in any real sense as an
individual, but his Presidency was one of the most critical I've certainly ever seen in a public sense. By contrast, people joked once upon a time
that Obama could outright kill someone and get away with it. Well, since that joke was first floating around, he's not only gone and actually done it
on the record, with Americans no less, but this whole thing recently had been debating whether he could go and do it again...or at least tell anyone
Oh.. we're doomed... lol
