  •  How is Obama's policy different? (14+ / 0-)

    Did you miss it when he cranked up the Afghanistan meat grinder? Did you miss it when he prolonged the war, ending the U.S. combat role according to the status of forces agreement that Bush signed? Did you miss all the drone strikes and assassinations? Did you miss the reclassifying of everyone near a drone strike as a combatant, so that the U.S. can claim these strikes aren't killing civilians?

    Go ahead, show me exactly how Obama's war policies have been an improvement. If you can.

    Tell me about all the investigations of war profiteering. If you can.

    Silence is consent. He gave everyone a pass.

    Tell me about all the investigations and prosecutions of torture, if you can.

    Silence is consent. He gave everyone a pass.

    Then there's the bank bailout. Just tell me how Obama's policy towards Wall Street is tougher than Bush's. If you can.

    Tell me about all the top executives who have been indicted. If you can.

    Silence is consent. He gave everyone a pass.

    Then there's his wanton destruction of Constitutional civil liberties, to the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Amendments in particular, his sadistic confinement in Gitmo of detainees who have been cleared, and his war on whistle blowers.

    And now this.

    Your opinion differs, obviously. And you are entitled to your opinion, even though you have nothing to back it up. But your HR is ratings abuse and you know it.

    What we need is a Democrat in the White House.
