"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
No one can blame Bush for any of this, I don't believe Bush's intent was nefarious, however it certainly was misguided because he opened the doors for tyrants like Obama to abuse it - and that was my concern since day one. Obama just want's to eradicate his dissenters in the United States, and dissenters of the progressive agenda entirely. Obama is creating precedence for a Stalinist totalitarian government.
As for tyrant, puuuhhhlease, you are posting on the internet against OBama without sercret service knocking on your door. Yeah, some tyrant. Come back when you know what a REAL tyrant is. Save your hyperbole for some idiot conservative that doesn't know how to tei their shoes. You can start with the RNC.
All of the BS "war crimes" nonsense you libs went on and on about, all of the Halliburton nonsense, "blood for oil etc...
The nonsense over enhanced interogation.
NOW a lib President has justified killing Americans without due process, and your all for it.
Fantastic. You folks wanted to give due process to the 9/11 conspirators. Give enemy combatants Miranda Rights.
Could you guys be any more hypocritical ?
I'm not aware that the US or its allies are at war with Pakistan, but perhaps it's a silent/secret war that only the administration is aware of. Yemen is an entirely different story - America is definitely not at war with Yemen and a drone strike was used to kill an American citizen and his American citizen son. Since Obama and his Attorney General were spewing platitudes about providing detainees in Guantanamo with due process and access to American courts, it seems odd that these American citizens in Yemen, one an innocent child, didn't get due process or access to the courts, they got Presidential execution. You're okay with that?
Is the US President and Sec. of State now going to get involved in every parole violation??? That should be something to watch!
And actually Afghanistan wasn't a war zone until we made it one. You remember why we went there right? Because the Taliban were harboring Al-Qaeda. Pakistan basically did the same thing. So if you liked what Bush did, you are hypocritical if you are now complaining about what OBama is doing.
