    I see large portions on the left not going after Obama as rabidly as they went after Bush for the same things. Like the war, Obama has expanded it. But people didn't speak out aggressively against Obama drone bombing his way through the Middle East. Or the healthcare thing, it's pretty much the same as Medicaid Part D for insurance companies; but there's not a lot of speaking out. Or the proliferation of tax cuts to the wealthy. Only now is there criticism, but a lot of it is still directed at Bush, not Obama. Gitmo? Patriot Act? Warrantless tapping and searches? TSA power? Hell not even the Real ID Act has been formally revoked, it's just been suspended because the States finally stood up and told the federal government to take a long walk off a short pier. These things were all proliferated under Obama; but where's the outrage?

    See both sides play the same game.

    True, but it sure does paint the Bundy supporters as hypocrites.

    Do you?

    Then why no criticism for the wingnut who claimed that Obama was worse than bush* and then fled the thread? I guess that's just your "non-partisanship" at work.

    Few bother to check the record. The majority of Democrats voted against extending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.

    I agree that there's some hypocrisy on both sides, but I don't think they're even close to being equal.

    And there has been a lot of speaking out from the left about Obama concerning all the issues you mention. It's just that the media doesnt cover the left so much. But if you go to a leftwing website, like DU, you'll see plenty of it

    Which wingnut are you referring to? I have never had a problem calling out republican ideological stupidity.

    I don't know, I don't really see it in general. I have a lot of friends on both sides of the isles and I've seen their arguments change. To me who sits outside the system looking in, it's like 'how the hell can they even justify this to themselves?". Obama deserves a lot of criticism for being a ****ty president. So does Bush. But let's call a duck a duck. Both Bush and Obama are very similar, I don't even know which one could be considered "better"; they're both ****.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    It was the one with the incomprehensible handle Pzkf..whatever. I even reposted it. It obviously flew right past you without your noticing it.
