You do not believe it is being a hypocrite or intellectually dishonest to rail about Bush fighting a war that was voted FOR in a bi-partisan fashion but ignores the FACT that Obama has continued that operation when he promised to end the war in Iraq and pull our troops out?
I am sorry, but I think you should look up the term "rationalizing" in the dictionary if you think that you have been intellectually honest dealing with Palin, Bush or anyone else you have demagogue with hyperbolic rhetoric and fabricated facts.
You support a political ideology that is based on hypocrisy and denigrating its political opponents with divisive partisan rhetoric, hyperbolic bile and with lies and distortions.
I am stunned that you can even sit there and type such nonsense and not at least be slightly embarrassed by it. I believe that the fact that even if you claim you never made such comments, just remaining silent on the issue suggests that you found it “okay.”
How can anyone compare the actions pre-9-11 to those being taken now.
Obama has the benefit of the lessons supposedly learned from 9-11; the question has merit and begs an honest response. If post 9-11 our political actions result in another attack, are you going to blame the Obama Administration?

2. I was as against the Democrats that voted in favor of invading Iraq as I am against Bush and the Republicans. I have been against our involvement in Iraq from day 1 and I am not happy with Obama's progress towards getting us out. I am giving Obama a little time, in that he didn't campaign on the idea that he would pull our troops out the first day he took office, but about the year mark that Obama is in office, if he hasn't pulled out our troops, you can bet that I'm going to be criticizing his efforts as well.
3. As far as Palin - Yes...absolutely I definitely criticized her, but criticism is not intellectual dishonesty. I was never part of the "I can see Alaska from my house" crowd. I don't think anything I wrote about Palin could be deemed intellectually dishonest. My criticism was based on her policies and the fact that personally I was scared to death to think that she would be a heartbeat away from the Presidency.
4. As far as remaining silent - True...I didn't really speak out against some of the most outrageous claims, but I haven't had much to say on the other side either. I try to stay away from the "Birther" arguments and the Obama is a Communist/Socialist wackos. I did get sucked in recently with the whole education speech because it was so outrageous in my mind and I found it fascinating that some people actually were trying to argue that the President shouldn't speak to kids about education.
Again....I'm about as left-wing as you can get....but it doesn't mean that I adopt some of the leftist fringe that is beyond me.
