I don't recall the Obama administration having a cabinet meeting ten days after he was first inaugurated where the main topic of discussion was the invasion of a country that had not attacked us and posed no clear and present danger to America. I don't recall Obama himself being personally warned - several times! - of an impending attack by al Qaeda...and then pointedly ignoring said warning. I DON'T RECALL OBAMA FLYING OUT OSAMA BIN LADEN'S FAMILY FROM AMERICA WHILE ALL THE REST OF AMERICA'S CIVILIAN AIRCRAFT WERE GROUNDED.
No, guy, Obama's administration is a hell of a lot better than Bush's. He's got a lot of faults - liberals like myself will tell you lots of his faults, just like you surely could point out Bush's faults.
But you know what? Ask liberals what Dubya did that was RIGHT, and most of us (like myself) will tell you that he DID do some things that were right. On the other hand, do you personally know any conservatives at all who would have the guts to say what Obama's done that was right? Scarce as hens' teeth, huh? You can find conservatives who can easily point out what Hitler and Stalin and Mao did that was right...but almost never Obama.
In other words, liberals have a heck of a lot less of a problem looking at both sides of the story, at saying what BOTH sides do that is right or wrong. Conservatives...not so much. This has been shown before in a scientific study concerning conservatives and liberals and cognitive dissonance. Of course, since that was a scientific study saying something you wouldn't want to hear, the demographics make it extremely likely that you'll completely disregard the results of the study and its implications.
And THAT, sir, is why you assumed I wouldn't defend Bush - because even if you personally might actually defend Obama concerning this or that decision, the vast majority of conservatives would not, could not bring themselves to do so...and you assumed that I was like them. FYI, I strongly admire Bush 41 and I've said many times - with good reason - that Reagan was one of the five best presidents ever.
Didn't think you'd hear that from a proud liberal, didja?
