Why arent YOU outraged?

Obama EXPANDED the Patriot Act that you wanted Bush crucified for.

You agreed with Obama saying that Bush taxed the middle class too much but now its ok that Obama's raising middle class taxes.

Bush was a warmonger & all those other horrible names you painted on your protest signs but Obama's sending more American troops to Afganistan.


So wheres your anger now that the CHANGE you got was not undoing what Bush did but taking it & making it worse?

  • Because it's OBAMA!!! He will ALWAYS get a free pass! Apparently he needs 8 years in order to make a difference--not just 7 months! He's just Carter/Clinton/Bush II version 2.0!!! LOL

  • I am sure they will claim to "not like it".... But yet their outrage is not as NEARLY as demonstrated it was with Bush. Interesting? I don't see protesters with signs against Obama and this matter. But ohhhh Bush??? My oh my~ did he get some dooooooozies!!!!

  • You agreed with Obama saying that Bush taxed the middle class too much but now its ok that Obama's raising middle class taxes. He hasn't raised any taxes and actually has just signed a tax cut....


     Bush was a warmonger & all those other horrible names you painted on your protest signs but Obama's sending more American troops to Afganistan. Bush was a war mongerer for lying and bending intel in order to invade Iraq. Afghanastan is where most of the taliban is and thats where we should have focused all of our efforts in the beginning in order to capture the man responsible for killing almost 5000 Americans

    Where is your actual proof Bush lied? Where is the court case against him? legal action of any sorts?  You believe your conspiracy theories all you want. But untill he is tried in a court of law for "lying" your claim of warmongering is just your opinion.

  • here's the real deal,

    Democrats had roundly criticized the then Republican Congress and President Bush when the bills was passed. Now they and Obama have to decide whether or not to renew the Patriot Act. If it is renewed, it will bring down the wrath Democrats and civil libertarians. If it is not passed, and there is a terrorist attack that might have been prevented by the Act, it will be used by Republicans as proof that they were right in passing it to protect national security.

    No conspiracy theories needed. Where are the WMD's? Shouldn't we have been SURE in order to start a war? Where is that yellow cake that was never sold in Niger? When was the meeting if Sadaam and Osama that shows they were working together? Oh wait the CIA TOLD Bush from the beginning that was NOT the case But instead we invaded Iraq and approved of torture to find a link...and still did NOT
