    And the hypocricy of the left?
    Those that criticized Bush and are giving The Obama a pass?
    That must be part the topic as well.

    What do you think of those that are doing that?

    Indeed, those that gave Obama a pass on this while criticizing Bush are hypocrites as well.

    I'll take that as a concession from you thank you.

    The right didn't have a problem with Bush doing it but they have a problem with Obama doing it.

    Yeah, right. It's not a concession, because I'm under no obligation to prove anything. You, however, are, because you made an assertion.

    That's simply the way it works. Not my fault if you think the assertion is unprovable . . . which, actually, sounds like a "concession" to me.

    I have simply pointed out Cheney's hypocrisy, in that his administration "dithered" far longer and did not come close to filling multiple troop requests by commanders on the ground in Afghanistan.

    Isn't Obama the one that said that Afghanistan was the real war of necessity? I think so. Bush and Co., never took this long to provide the Generals what they requested regarding Iraq. So yeah it is just a little dishonest to trumpet what Bush did at this point, Obama owns this war now, NOT BUSH.

    Like I said, thanks for the concession. Since the majority of conservatives here didn't post any outrage from Bush delaying, there isn't any posts.

    Again, sorry you can't deal with the FACTS that many on the right here are being hypocrites for it.

    You have shown no facts. Sorry. That's just the way it is.

    Funny that you state this as a fact, but cannot show that to be the case.
