Random Thoughts About Progressive Hypocrisy

When George Bush didn't shut down Gitmo, they called him a fascist. When Obama, after vowing countless times to close it, leaves it open, liberals think it's cute.

The same folks who were certain that the Patriot Act was treasonous under Bush see how essential it is under Obama.

When Bush mispronounced "nuclear" or Palin supposedly claimed she could see Russia on a clear day from her front porch, liberals carried on as if he had nuked London and she had broken wind on "The View," but when Obama refers to 57 states, trashes America's history and kowtows to Muslims, the Left could just eat him up with a spoon.

When Bush suggested that it might be a good idea if people chose to take control of their own Social Security investments, liberals accused him of trying to destroy America's senior citizens. However, when the President got Reid and Pelosi to use bribery and intimidation to coerce their colleagues into passing ObamaCare, which would leave the health care of seniors up to bureaucrats, the liberals broke out the balloons and party hats.

When Bush waged war in Iraq, the Left compared him to Hitler. However, when Obama wages war in Afghanistan, the Left gives him a pass, the L.A. Times doesn't keep a running count of how many American soldiers die fighting Obama's war and Gerry Trudeau doesn't devote "Doonesbury," allegedly a comic strip, to listing the names of the dead.

Now, I acknowledge that this is all supposition on my part. I have no actual proof that liberals are the end result of a laboratory experiment that's gone terribly wrong.  But on the chance I'm right, I pray that someone somewhere is working day and night to come up with the antidote.
