Obama Foreign Policy No Better Than Bush

The only difference is the way the media covers and spins it. It is appauling to me how Obama's administration can be just as tyranical and gruesome as Bush, yet he gets impunity from the media and his left wing nut jobs (similar to how Bush's right wing loonies backed him). It's crazy how blindly people follow their fearless leaders (on both sides of the aisle).

Denver born 16 year old American gets targeted (and killed)by US drones for being nothing more than the son of a terrorist. Obama's spokes mouth says:

"I would suggest that you should have a far more responsible father if they are truly concerned about the well-being of their children," former White House spokesperson Robert Gibbs.

Why won't the media blow this out of the water like they did with Bush. He deserves the same scrutiny.

That's what I'm saying, Obama is no better.

I voted for Gary Johnson.

I voted for Jill Stein. No socialist candidate in California *shake my head*, at least I had Gloria La Riva in 2008.

I voted for Dennis Miller as a write in. He's much better looking than Rosanne Barr and is much much smarter... ;)

Dennis would have been a pretty good candidate. Social libertarian and fiscal conservative with loads of common sense.

The sad part is that politicians are like a box of chocolates (you never know what you're gonna get). They are like Obamacare, you have to vote them in to see what you get. The closest that any one person might be able to get to guessing what their policies might be, is to calculate the exact opposite of their campaign promises. So next time a candidate runs for office on the platform of running up national debt, turning America into a 3rd world country, stripping Americans of their freedoms, hiding all of the states secrects that it "really" would be in our best interest to know, and dividing parties deeply on party lines. Now that would be the candidate to vote for. I mean it couldn't be any worse than where we've been the last 12 years.

We already did 40 years ago with Nixon and Watergate then we got St REAGAN, Bush 1 and 2
Reagan furthered the drug war which was the first assault on personal liberty.
Raised the debt
Starve the beast with tax cuts to domestic spending but anything goes for military spending and add to the debt.
Weapons sold Iran Contra talk about secrets

Then Bush 1 hide the secrets of war banning any photos of our dead. At least he was sane enough to know to raise the taxes when needed a true conservative. Why he lost with his NO NEW TAXES PLEDGE broke.

Then Bush 2 doubled down Divided the people with stealing of the 2000 election and Starve the beast with more tax cuts to domestic spending but anything goes for military spending and add even more to the debt with is lie of Iraq.

One party is really the lesser of the two evils they have a history.

Once the door is open from one president the others will follow suit.

Drug war
Patriot act
And the larget expansion of government with Homeland security at the tune of 400,000 new government employees, payrolls and pensions.

I DID vote for President Obama and do not regret my vote at all. However, this DOES NOT mean that I support EVERYTHING or EVERY policy Obama backs. I wish that healthcare reform had gone further and included a single-payer, public option (government-provided healthcare), but that is a minor quibble. But I am deeply troubled by the use of drone strikes. I understand it makes our men and women soldiers safer by not having to engage in the field, but the "video game" nature of drone strikes, the distance and dehumanization, the collateral damage of the deaths of civilians who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, are all disturbing. It amazes me that after thousands of years of warfare, only the weaponry has experienced a rising level of sophistication. Human nature doesn't appear to have evolved much at all from that "I want that and I'm willing to kill you for it" or "I'm right, your cause is wrong and I'll die or kill you to prove it" mentality. There is something bone-chillingly scary in the thought that we can distantly destroy one another with the push of a button (nuclear attacks) or launch remote drone strikes. I think we should back away from this technology as fast as possible. The cons far outweigh the pros and the implications and ramifications should give us all pause for reflection, in my opinion. Sincerely, Karen

Midwestgirl. I really take what you have to say with a grain of salt since it so biased along party lines. Any one who can point out lists of ills regarding one party while failing to mention all the shortfalls of the other has a twisted view of politics. You are as big a part of the political problems this nation has as the politicians themselves.

Capitalists_Nightmare commented on Thursday, Feb 07, 2013 at 03:06 AM

midwestgirl it's not just Republicans. I mean I have to laugh when people think of the Democratic party as the peace ticket. They drove us into more wars than Republicans have. The only reason the Iraq war ended(sort of) was because BUSH set the deadline with the Iraqi government and the Iraqi government didn't want to extend that deadline when Obama asked for that extension.

She looked so convincing clenching her fists, lowering her brow, and raising her voice (while looking down and reading). They should have allowed a teleprompter for her at the hearing.
