Chief, this is exactly why we have large amount of patriots that are liberal that hate anything Conservative or Republican because our backbone, the mainstream media have failed us. These patriots consider the truth hate speech and witch hunting while on the flip side they demonized and opposed anything George W. Bush did. Here’s the example ”Bush lied people died “ Bill and Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Joe Biden and a host of prominent Democrats believed and said the same in regards to WMD’s. It doesn’t take a genius to know the Iraq war was optional and in hindsight it could have been handled differently; however Dubya went to Congress and got the approval to do so and all you here from the left is Bush took us into an illegal war, really. If that were true he would have been impeached in 2007 when the Democrats took over Congress. President the Senator Obama said no President has the authority to use military force without congressional approval unless there was imminent danger to the US. Was there an imminent threat to America from Khadafy in Libya in 2011? Will an Obama supporter explain to this blogosphere why Obama can break the law and get a pass, and Dubya can follow the law and don’t?
It's the American way, Funky. Think of it this way - when Bush orders Americans surveilled for national security, it's "wrong." When Obama does it, it's "right."
It's called hypocrisy.
Just saw this one??!!
Funk, I do seem to recall Ronald Wilson Reagan (President 666, all his names are 6 letters!!! ooooo-weeeeee-00000!)
authorizing a nightime jet attack on Ghadaffi's home and compound back in the 80's. Ronald didn't run that particular strike by congress before doing it. On another note, he could not "remember" very much about Iran-Contra arms dealing by Oliver North and his having known 'anything' about that particular scandal.
JimmyMack, I'm behind the power curve on this; however if what you have presented is true, the Gipper was wrong too.
Good policy remains good policy; bad policy is still bad policy. Obama continues the Bush Doctrine because - regardless of what he said as Candidate Obama - IT IS GOOD POLICY.
As for the Gipper, I believed then that it was good policy to take Gadaffi out - just as it was good policy for regime change in Iraq. I fault our the leadership for not having the guts to tell the truth to the American people as to what our policy was; BUT IT DON'T FAULT THEM FOR THE POLICY ITSELF.
Obama's actions re: Homeland Security have been in the the best interests of this country. There is a distinction between homeland security and foreign policy. I don't agree with Obama on the full breadth of his foreign policy, but he's doing pretty well on homeland security. Let's hope that the latest scandals don't throw away the tools we've developed to keep Americans safe.
Once again Jimmy Mack goes back to Reagan as if that gives Obama a pass when he violates the Constitution. It makes no different which party is in power when the Constitution is by-passed. Wayne Miller, 1SG, USA (Ret)
