WHERE THE HELL WERE THESE PEOPLE WHEN THE PATRIOT ACT WAS BEING "DEBATED"?
WHERE THE HELL WERE THESE PEOPLE WHEN BUSH WAS DEFENDING WARRANTLESS WIRE-TAPS?!
Now... BELIEVE ME... I'm as disappointed as the next guy (probably ClassicLiberal) that President Obama did not immediately, and has not yet, disabled and dismantled all of these illegal Bush-Era practices. (Like the MURDER LIST? Yeah... Come on Barry, WTF RU waiting for?!)
And I, like many Liberals, am certainly not above critical discussion of President Obama. But I cannot STAND it when he's criticised for continuing Bush-era policies by the same RW Fools that HEER-LEAD the SAME POLICIES when Bush was in office, while REAL Civil Libertarians were voicing their concerns and were ridiculed BY THESE SAME PEOPLE for it!
The list of hypocrisy and projection on the part oft he Right grows and grows, and this is actually two more examples in one: First - They complain Obama doing what Bush did... And criticised us fro complaining about it under Bush! Second - They keep saying we don't criticize Obama. That he's our "Messiah" or that anyone who criticise him will be called a racist. Um... No. That's a lot of shit that the Right just MADE UP. And it's obvious from how these things always play out, that THEY are the ones who can't stand to see their leaders criticized.
How much more obvious can that be when the criticize Obama for doing the very things THEY INVENTED?!
Oh yeah... And speaking of Cracked, here's another great article. There "liberal bias" (read penchant for living in reality) is less subtle with this one. The article's great, and some of the comments are even better. (Look for mine: 'EddieCabot'!)
