I know Im fairly new on this board but I am amazed at the amount of hypocrisy on this board by the right wingers aim toward President Obama and his policies. I have read over and over people slamming him on his surge in Afghanistan. The hypocrisy comes in when these same people would not dare to criticize Bush on his troop surge in Iraq. Look, either a troop surge is good or it isnt guys. Its a military decision but if it works its good, right? These same people cry about wanting us out of Iraq. Well we should never have gone to Iraq in the first place. But what used to be a good idea to the wingnuts suddenly became a bad idea when the people of our nation elected President Obama. I hate the fact that we went there in the first place but realized that we could not leave until the job is done. But these wingnuts think we can just get up and leave without realizing what harm will come from further destabilization. You dont like us there? Then blame your buddy Bush. But dont blame Obama who was handed this job to finish. Because finish it he will. These same people slam Obama on being in Afghanistan. HELLO!! Bush put us there!! And I fully support our presence there as long as were looking for Bin Laden. I supported it when Bush sent our troops there and I still support it. I cant even believe the venom spewed toward Obama on the auto bailout. I guess it was a good idea when Bush started it, but suddenly became bad when Obama saw it through. OH but it was a GOOD idea when Reagan did it. Figure THAT one out. And guess what? It turned out to be a great success for Bush, Obama and millions of working men and women. But the wingnuts must be the only people in America that still say it was a bad idea? I may be left leaning but I can say that I stood with George W Bush on 9/11, supported his move on the auto bailout and our going into Afghanistan. He was a lousy POTUS but he did make a few right decisions over his eight years. The law of averages dictates that. On the other hand the vicious, rabid wingnuts are still lying about Obamas citizenship (hes a legal citizen), his being a Muslim (hes not) or even socialist because of his health care policy (GOP POTUSs have proposed the same thing in the past). So I guess thats what separates us from the wingnuts. We dont change our opinions based on who occupies the Oval Office. They can't help it.
