Libtalker Questions Obama's Free Pass On War


Bush War = Bad, Obama War = Good

Now that a liberal Democrat president is the Warmonger-in-Residence, isn't the left's relative silence fascinating?

As Predator drones are sent to Libya for combat by remote control, few "progressives" are debating our involvement in a complicated, increasingly regional conflict. Instead, some are even considering ground troops for the fight against Qaddafi's dictatorship. The far-left Huffington Post's drumbeat is particularly amusing.

Is it really as simple as Bush War = Bad, Obama War = Good? Is naked partisanship running amok?

That's why a dissenting view from libtalker Bill Press has caught our attention. During Friday's syndicated radio show, the ordinarily compliant Democrat questioned his own side's rush to jump into this conflict, particularly after the anger aimed at Bush in the first days of the Iraq invasion:

BILL PRESS (59:11): I think if this were George Bush saying he were sending drones into Libya this morning, a lot of us would be saying, "Oh, no you don't! No you don't.

That's taking it one step too far. That is really making this an American war."

The left's pursuit
of Bush as he sought to remove Saddam Hussein from power was nothing short of predatory, while Obama is given a near-free pass to conduct additional attacks as he sees fit. What's wrong with this picture?


  • It's Bill Press, about 3 dozen people care what he says. But that is a dozen more then care about what Mike Malloy says.

  • Actually, there are non-hypocrits on the Liberal side, such as Kucinich and McKinney, but yes, only the far-far-left are being honest, while the regular Liberals have shown their hypocritical colors.

  • There's a street corner in my neighborhood that used to be crowded with anti-war demonstrators every Sunday during GWB's 2nd term. I haven't seen a single sign since their guy took office. Think about that every time I drive past.

  • It's the same thing with gas prices. When gas went up during the Bush years, everyone was in a frenzy, blaming Bush and demanding that something be done. Now, you don't hear a peep. And when Obama finally does have to address it, he mocks the person asking the question, and tells him it's time to buy a new vehicle.
