BDS: "The Bush Memos" is the latest episode!
What do you do when the market has dropped since your guy won the election?
What do you when you break a campaign promise and keep 50,000 troops in Iraq?
What do you when producers sit on the sidelines:
"Capital, bluntly put, has gone on strike.
Those who own wealth are pushing it to the sidelines, as a young and inexperienced president tries to jam through the most sweeping economic changes in over 70 years." (Capital On Strike)
Hope and change is a lot of "hype and fear"!
What do you do when some are asking: Is the Worst Yet to Come? by Charlie Gasparino!
What do you do when David Brooks, one of those conservatives who spoke favorably about candidate Obama, writes this:
"Those of us who consider ourselves moderates — moderate-conservative, in my case — are forced to confront the reality that Barack Obama is not who we thought he was.
His words are responsible; his character is inspiring.
But his actions betray a transformational liberalism that should put every centrist on notice." (A Moderate Manifesto )
What do you do?
You unleash another anti-Bush story!
Here is the latest: The Bush Memos! (Bush counterterrorist legal memos released)
These memos were written in the context of a terrorist attack that killed 3,000 Americans.
They were written in the context of a government anticipating the worst. After all, weren't they criticized for not connecting the dots that led to 9-11?
Go back to the days after 9-11.
How many of you thought that we would go 7-plus years without an attack?
I was convinced that there were Al Qaeda cells in the US ready to unleash another attack, including the unthinkable briefcase bomb.
What did Pres Bush do? He responsibly looked at his options.
How do Pres Bush's action compare to previous presidents acting in extraordinary times?
Pres Lincoln cancelled habeus corpus in the middle of the Civil War.
Pres FD Roosevelt put Japanese-Americans in detention camps.
We need some context not another episode of Bush Derangement Syndrome.
Get ready for a lot more Bush Derangement Syndrome, specially to distract the nation from Pres BO's trillion dollar deficits!
When will the Dems get over Bush? They can't!
Getting over Bush means that they actually have to govern rather than just blaming the coach from the bleachers!
