Silly things liberals say. IV

"The US (under Reagan and GHWB) armed Saddam's Iraq"

Technically, they're not totally incorrect.  But, perspective is in order.  (Keep in mind we give almost every country aid).
















































But, the same people who believe this mantra won't acknowledge how the first state-sponsored terrorist nation, Iran, was allowed to happen under Carter's "watchful" eye.

Fools for marketing, blind to reality

A quick recap of obama the campaigner and obama the president.
These came to me with about 5 minutes worth of pondering. 
Advertised:
Actual:
More transparency
The only presidential candidate to not release health records and university transcripts.  Not to mention an army of "czars" that are unaccountable. 
Bi-partisanship
Passed the healthcare government takeover (misusing the word "reform") behind locked doors ignoring real reform ideas like allowing health providers to compete between states and much-needed tort reform.  Obamacare is the most deceptive, expensive and liberty-limiting bill pushed upon the people ever.
Bills posted for public viewing at least for 72 hours before voting.
Great idea.  Hasn't delivered.  In fact, he covered up the truth about obamacare's details and worked harder to disparage truth-tellers than actually let people see it.
Close Gitmo
After spreading lies about Gitmo and politicizing such things without regard to America's interests, it remains open.
Stop water-boarding
After exaggerating water-boarding and convincing idiots that it's "torture", it was essential in the capture of bin laden.  Amazingly, his respect for American victims is void - his administration is still bent on prosecuting agents whose interrogation led to the capture of OBL.
End the Patriot Act
He not only extended the timing of this bill, he increased the amount of intrusion allowed.
Improve world opinion of the US.
Fail.  He's offends allies (UK, France) while bowing to dictators.
Get consensus before engaging in a foreign military exercise.
He falsely portrayed that the US "went at it alone" in Iraq.  Yet we had the support of two dozen other countries.  Far more support than his rush into Libya. 
Get spending under control and reduce the deficit
He's tripled the deficit; his "stimulus" was unprecedented waste that turned out to be financial payment to his supporters using tax-dollar money.  It has weakened the dollar causing increasing inflation.
Focus on job-creation "like a laser"
Please, someone tell him to stop focusing.  He's increased unemployment 30%!


Cut "taxes for the rich" (end the Bush tax cuts)
This one we're actually glad he didn’t do as promised.  Funny how he back-pedals because he realizes that ending the Bush tax cuts would be so disastrous, so quickly, for all of us that even he might be held accountable.  As a campaign promise, he realized how he could count on the support of the consumed-with-envy and irresponsible.  As a policy, so bad even he won't go there.
He also swore to uphold the constitution....
So, why then is he battling to remove privacy from workers' votes to unionize or not?  What an essential constitutional right.  Yet, he wants to remove it because he knows that unions are a great democratic party money laundering scheme.

Thank you GWB

They (the Left and its media) were against the 'surge' that resulted in a free Iraq (including young senator Obama).
They (dem senate "leader", Harry Reid) proclaimed "the war is lost" disparaging our troops' morale,
They politicized and exaggerated waterboarding which was instrumental in finding osama bin laden.
They even convinced some that the US "rushed into war" and "went at it alone".
They were more concerned that the truth about the mission's execution and preparedness would result in a popular president "from the other side" than they were concerned about a freer Iraq and a safer world.

Throughout, GWB remained steadfast and clear.

GWB won't get wide-spread credit from the media or academia.  
In fact, if he did, GWB would quickly deflect appreciation in lieu of encouraging our allies and showing sincere gratitude to our men and women in uniform.

But, from those of us that care to care about America and the world:  Job well done, sir.
History will look on you kindly.
