If President Bush was a war criminal what does that make Barack Obama?

February 8, 2013

   The idea for this post came after reading this article at Capitol Commentary, please check it out.

  How many times after the war on terror began did we hear the left claim that President Bush was a war criminal? All you have to do is google “Bush war criminal” and you will come up with innumerable articles calling President Bush a war criminal and calling for him to be tried for war crimes. Here is one such article:

Some 269 war crimes during the Bush administration, based primarily on autobiographical and journalistic reports in four categories—illegal decisions to go to war, the military conduct of war, mistreatment of prisoners of war, and the misoccupations of Afghanistan and Iraq.

 (To be fair you can find some articles calling Barack Obama a war criminal, but where are the protesters?)

   We saw many protesters rally against President Bush’s crimes yet doesn’t that quote above also apply to Barack Obama? Where are the protesters? Barack Obama also illegally went to war in Libya and Egypt while also supporting the uprising in Syria and we have troops scattered throughout Africa, yet the left is quiet.

  The “mistreatment of prisoners of war” was a rallying cry which helped  Barack Obama ride to the presidency in 2008: he claimed that torture lessened the standing of America in the world and made our country less safe. He talked about the innocent lives being lost during the war, yet as president he has ordered drone strikes which also kill innocent people and yet the left remains silent.

  Barack Obama has gone so far as to declare he can assassinate American citizens with drone strikes without charges and without even proof these “threats” are even plotting against the United States and yet the left remains silent.

  Barack Obama even ordered the assassination of an American teenager, who was eventually killed in a drone strike and yet the left remains silent.

  Barack Obama was against “torturing” enemy combatants to gain information for use in the war on terror and he wanted to grant those caught on the battlefield the constitutional right of a trial by jury yet he does not think he has to afford American citizens the same right–he can simply kill them and we are supposed to believe this killing is okay but “torture” is a human rights violation? And yet the left remains silent.

  Four Americans died in a terrorist attack in Benghazi because Barack Obama may have been running guns captured in Libya into Syria, and then he tried to cover it up and yet the left remains silent.

  If President Bush was a war criminal, what does that make Barack Obama? And yet the left remains silent…..

    Thinking back, Nixon was impeached for breaking into a building. No lives lost. How far have we slid into the abyss.

      Obama gave himself a license to kill, but we can’t pour water on someone’s face. It’s insane, Steve.

      We sure have slipped, haven’t we? Nixon tried to cover up an B and E and he had to resign in disgrace yet Obama condones killing Americans without a trial and the media doesn’t see a problem. This is why I am not hopeful of the future.

    It makes him NOT a criminal, if you listen to the media. They have all the answers fed to them on what they need to say. Nixon resigned because it was the right thing to do and now it seems like such a small thing compared to the massive wrongs this president has done. We can blame ourselves for putting him back in office and we can blame the media for reporting with a bias….we can blame Obama, but who the hell will listen, guess that is my point. We have Republicans that don’t want to rock the boat and we have Democrats that are hell bent on moving ahead with any and all of Obamas plans. Are they really that stupid to think that they will be exempt from the results of their actions? When they finally realize what they have done, “I told you so” will not have the same satisfaction, will it?

      I cant get over the fact that they too have children and granchildren. Do they really want the kind of life they plan for us for them? Or do they think they will be exempt in some way.

        I don’t think they look that far in the future because they are so focused on holding onto their power, which is all they really care about.

      And now I heard some clips on the radio of the MSM saying it was okay for Obama to use drone because we can trust him. Really?
      These clips also went on to lament the fact that someday we may have a Republican in the White House who we couldn’t trust because he might take the use of drones to unprecedented levels, as if Obama hasn’t already done that! Is there any wonder why we call them the propaganda arm of the White House?

        That makes no sense. Consider Fast and Furious and the other scandals that have taken place during his first four years and the media says we can trust Obama with drones? How can anyone be so stupid?


      • February 9, 2013 5:14 pm

        I don’t know Larry! They do go to great lengths to defend this man, don’t they?

    The silence is deafening. Can’t you just imagine how the media would be shouting, had Bush even got close to some of the policies that are in place in the Obama administration?

    Once the commies,Marxists, socialists or whomever take over the joke will be on those of the dependency class when food stamps are replaced with bread lines. And when the loaves and soup run out they will be replaced with starvation and in the final analysis when the death panels fall to achieve their goal there is always genocide to fall back on. What jerks a majority of us are.

      All they have to do is look at history to see how this will end if we are not careful.

    The left’s hypocrisy on this is stunning Steve. But when you don’t stand on principle and your standards are as fluid as a raging river and are willing to compromise any thing to achieve your goal then it shouldn’t surprise anyone when all we hear from the left are crickets when it comes to Obama’s unconstitutional acts. This hypocrisy needs to be exposed and they need to be called out on it. But think about this. Why aren’t the Republicans as passionate as the Democrats were when it came to Bush. Republicans should be on every talk show, use any media outlet, talk radio, and be in front of any TV camera not only talking about the President’s hypocrisy, but also the left’s. Republican are more afraid of their own shadows these days than doing what’s right for America and we’re suffering for it because they’re offering very little opposition to this President or his party.


    • February 9, 2013 5:15 pm

      I am doing my best to expose this, as we all are, but we simply cannot compete with the MSM. That is where the Republicans need to step up and get this out and yet they are mostly quiet. It is so frustrating!

    The elites in lockstep with the political class are secure in their sense that their wealth and power will insulate them from the consequences of what the emporer is now blatantly foisting upon the nation, no longer needing incrementalism through the back door. With the simpletons, ideologues, and idealists now in the majority among the voting public along with a defanged opposition party it is just a matter of time. In fact it may be in their best interest for the republicans to meld into one with the democrat party thereby securing their future self interest i.e. power and wealth. If we had a free press and a free media we would all see that the emporer has no clothes. Instead we have allowed entrance to the interloper, laughing at us as he takes down the country from the inside not unlike the barbarians once inside the walls of Rome.

      I agree with everything you wrote, at this point there really is no difference between the parties and the Republicans are trying hard to make whatever differences there are disappear.

    If President Bush was a war criminal what does that make Barack Obama?

    In the eyes of the Libtards he is a great leader and hero of freedom and free drugs, or something…

    In reality, it is just more hypocrisy from the Libtards…

      You’re not being fair to those whom we used to call retards. History shows that they are much brighter than liberals.

      Exactly Fred!
