IRS, NSA, DNA, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, etc.

NSA, DNA, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, etc.

We all have our opinions on these scandals.

But step back for a moment and think about how you would feel about these if Bush were still in office.

The Patriot act was such a "BIG GOVT" snooping program when he was in office.

If a repub was in office, the lame stream media and probably all of the demos would be calling for impeachment.

Be honest with yourself, the same scandals are looked at differently depending who is in power. Even Obama blasted Bush for some of the same things he is doing now, only worse.

I hate all politicians.

There are few politically savvy intellectuals. There are tons of cheerleaders.

Which one are you? My guess, your spirit fingers and skill with pompoms are second to none.

Exactly what I was talking about.
Obama raised hell about the patriot act when Bush was pres, along with the deficit, the debt ceiling being raised, etc. They are cut from the same cloth only one is Red and one is Blue.

Because it didn't matter then - when your guy passed the legislation into law.

Don't think so.

It was only termed for a few years but the intent was for it to be reevaluated and amended.

Or the fact that you post up a cartoon to mock the right for doing exactly what you've done in the past.
