    Where is the outrage for the atrocities committed by soldiers during Obama's reign? This is a bit more severe than naked hooded guys in a pyramid. But the liberals are strangely silent.

        The government. Your tax dollars.

        Sure, Bush went to war, but Obama could just have easily stopped it.

        Ron Paul's message was "We just marched in, we can just march out".

        Obama said he would end the war, he hasn't.

        Why isn't everyone angrier at their government? I mean, come on! Listen to yourself! When presented with the fact that YOUR tax dollars are paying for these atrocities, your response is "well, the political party that I voted for didn't START the war! We just kept it going!"

        Wake up.

          Oh well we can't criticize Obama, that would be.... racist! I don't care what color you are if you suck at your job you're going to hear about it from me!

            LaLo - please make a rational connection. On the one hand,  you have soldiers accused of murder who will be tried in a military court. On the other hand you have President Obama. How is this his doing?

            You and Jimbo want to blame Obama. We get that you hate him, but you never made a connection between the Office of the President and the criminal actions of these thugs in uniform.

                Let's get this out there as you try to break your own record as the dingiest person on webpage forums. President Obama is supposed to know the minds of the 1 million soldiers and prevent them from committing crimes.

                If you are defending your lunacy with the wimpy suggestion that 'liberals blamed Bush' - show me where and what was said. At that time most of the criticism was for torture which was denied by Bush at the time - later proved and finally admitted.

                I think you are counting on faulty memories as you try to compare events with nothing in common.

                  Why do you always expect me to do your research? And no Bush didn't admit torture nor was it proved, in fact the opposite was the case. The justice dept reviews the special interrogation techniques and approved them as lawful and not torture prior to carrying them out... but let's not let facts prevent you from spewing your garbage.

                    "I think the interrogations were in violation of the Geneva Conventions and the convention against torture that we ratified under President Reagan," said the Arizona Republican. "I think these interrogations, once publicized, helped al Qaeda recruit. I got that from an al Qaeda operative in a prison camp in Iraq... I think that the ability of us to work with our allies was harmed. And I believe that information, according go the FBI and others, could have been gained through other members."

                Its weird how the libs can't seem to make the connection.

      Obama can do no wrong! He's not responsible for anything bad! Somehow this must be Bush's fault or Cheney or the Bankers or capitalism or freedom whatever... but Obama couldn't be responsible be was on vacation or playing golf!

      We're silent in the same way that Muslims are silent about the actions of their extremists. In other words, we're not. A cursory glance at the community on YouTube I'm affiliated with will make that very clear. Bush was outright evil, yes, but Obama's been extremely impotent in the face of the tea party.

          Are you related to Pretty Panther? It's amazing how well felines see through Jimbo. Despite his optical impediment, he's on a mission from God to tear down President Obama by associating any bad news with the POTUS - personally.

          When a gang of GIs committed rape and murder in Iraq, I don't recall that any liberals tried to make that a Bush conspiracy. On the other hand there was a lot of evidence that atrocities in prisons in Iraq were sanctioned by the Bush administration.

          That's where Jimbo falls on his face with this post. Nothing new.

            Once again the Obama supporters fail to see the hypocrisy in everything they say and do.

            Less than two years to go and then the incompetent one is tossed out.

              Jumbo - It doesn't matter how many rabid, irrational anti-Obama posts you make. Even if you and LaLo and LaLo and AnnCee work shifts for 18 months, you still have an insurmountable problem. ALL the GOP candidates who might be nominated (considering that the GOP is now dominated by evangelicals & libertarians) are losers. Unelectabable losers. And I think you know it and you are trying to offset the absence of leadership in the GOP by tearing down Obama.

                  It's hard for me to imagine how such a bungling inept failure like Obama could win reelection against ANYONE! The republican field of candidates is vast and we'll have to see who emerges from the debates but who ever it is will beat Obama hands down if he has the courage to run. I still think Hillary is setting herself up for a bid.

      You equate killing people to making them wear hoods and getting naked.

      Killing people and making them wear hoods is not the same.

        Pandoras Boxposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        One was a matter of policy and one wasn't. The one that wasn't cannot in any way be blamed on the president. Since it's not a matter of policy, it's not a matter of politics. Go preach to the killers. The Obama administration and democrats had nothing to do with it.

        You can keep mindlessly ranting if you like, but nobody takes you seriously who isn't suffering from the same disease.

            I agree. He probably does, he obviously does, and so I shouldn't have said that. I always miss the obvious. Wow. I never really seriously thought about it that way before. They probably do.

    The difference is that Bush had mostly just the wars for us to complain, especially as the wars were new.

    Obama has old wars and it's no longer the "fun" news topic of the moment.

    We have an ongoing economic and housing collapse, a bloated healthcare plan, Japan in crisis and Libya in a new civil war. 


    Remember, our news and news-viewership only has a few short weeks of an attention span.  War crimes are kind of "stale" these days.

      Cause it's irrelevant, and has nothing to do with either party. Just a bunch of dumb-a army boys acting on their own. It's not a political issue. But it's interesting -- scratch that, typical -- that on even something like this y'all wanna try and find a way to fault the left.
