    During Bush's two terms Jillian and the left on this boiard had a fit when ever it even remotely appeared that politics were played with the war on terror. Obama and his campaign are trotting it out like a good show pony event and not a peep from the left EXCEPT praise.

    Just wondering where all those complaints went?

    What were the complaints? That invading Iraq was a bad idea? That torturing suspects flew in the face of the American notion of justice and fair play? That borrowing the money to prosecute the wars from China was not a sound decision? That the war in Iraq was costing us too much in lives, treasure and international prestige?

    Were those the complaints?

    When ever any act that was publicly good occurred out of the War on Terror and it even remotely appeared that Bush or the Republicans were using it for Political advantage Jillian and the left on this board had a shit fit. Demanding it cease and desist instantly, that it was immoral and wrong to use the war as a political weapon or source of drumming up political support. But then you knew these and are practicing the lefts preposition of confuse and obstruct.

    Also Jillian personally had a fit when ever any group was arrested in the US for terror crimes and claimed the Government and more specifically Bush and Company were making it up for political gain, she did so with the group in Florida and New York. Yet any arrest under Obama is right and just according to the left and Jillian.

    i think obama has used the war, the terrorist and the military to the best of his ability to look like something he is not. just as he has ask the country to be frugal and endure hard times while he parties like a rock star? but there is no outcry..there was no outcry when he signed into laws bills that allow citizens to be held with no trial.....where was the outcry then? is it the media...no cause plenty of us know about it...or is it the fact that the citizens of the us dont educate themselves beyond party chants and mantra....but is there really any differences in the two parties? is there?

    The Obama campaign tore into the Hilary Clinton campaign for politicizing the War on Terror. He even accused them as being as bad as Bush for using the WOT as part of a campaign.

    Hello? Double freaking standard much?

    FLASHBACK: Obama Campaign Accused Clinton Of Using Bin Laden To &#8216;Score Political Points&#8217; In 2008

    ABC News&#8217; Michael Falcone reports:

    The Obama campaign opened up a new line of attack on Mitt Romney Friday, suggesting that as commander-in-chief Romney might not have made the same decision to order an attack by U.S. forces to kill terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden that President Obama did.

    In a new web video titled &#8220;One Chance,&#8221; the Obama team features former President Bill Clinton praising Obama for deciding to launch the strike last year. &#8220;Why path would Mitt Romney have taken?&#8221; the clip asks.

    But four years ago this April, the Obama campaign criticized Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for using Osama bin Laden in a political ad.

    On the eve of the 2008 Pennsylvania primary, Clinton&#8217;s campaign released a television commercial featuring an image of bin Laden and invoking President Harry S. Truman&#8217;s quote: &#8220;If you can&#8217;t stand the heat get out of the kitchen.&#8221;

    Further along in the article.***


    The Obama campaign spokesman, Bill Burton, accused the Clinton team of playing &#8220;the politics of fear&#8221; just like George W. Bush.

    Burton, now the head of the Democratic super PAC, Priorities USA, said at the time: &#8220;When Senator Clinton voted with President Bush to authorize the war in Iraq, she made a tragically bad decision that diverted our military from the terrorists who attacked us, and allowed Osama bin Laden to escape and regenerate his terrorist network.

    It&#8217;s ironic that she would borrow the President&#8217;s tactics in her own campaign and invoke bin Laden to score political points. We already have a President who plays the politics of fear, and we don&#8217;t need another.

    Sometimes people get the gov't - they deserve

    Politics being what it is in this country
    I suspect the serious issues ahead of us will be put off till
    the last minute- when there is no more choice

    We may end up like Greece
