Obama, Neocon In Chief
From extending and deepening the war in Afghanistan, to suppressing evidence of rampant and widespread abuse and torture of prisoners under Bush, to thuggishly threatening the British with intelligence cut-off if they reveal the brutal torture inflicted on Binyam Mohamed, Obama now has new cheer-leaders: Bill Kristol, Michael Goldfarb and Max Boot.
Incredibly, Obama is now being vilified by his grief-stricken devotees for not being leftwing enough.
During the campaign, THE ONE promised to strike actionable targets in Pakistan, (http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUSN013220642007080/) and talked equally as tough on Afghanistan, (http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/07/20/obama.afghanistan/) saying that ‘the war in Iraq had become a distraction to the battles in Afghanistan’ and “We took our eye off the ball.”
Wasn’t Sullivan paying attention? The Left kept pissing and moaning about Iraq being ‘the wrong war’ and we should go after Bin Laden in Afghanistan, although by then he had already fled into Pakistan.
The DemLeft was never serious about any part of the war on Islamic terrorism; they just figured it would be a matter of time before B. Hussein would renege on all that.
Psssst, Andy: He doesn’t support gay marriage either. That should really have your pink tights in a wad.
You may remember Andy’s abnormal preoccupation with Sarah Palin’s son. He accused her daughter Bristol of being the actual mother.
His tirades even drew criticism from his own staff.
I predicted back in November of 2008, that as long as Obama fulfilled the Left’s criteria, he would have their complete devotion. (http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2008/11/12/the-media-cavalcade-of-bias-hypocrisy-and-craptastic-stupidity/)
You’d think with all the domestic socialist policies and groveling to hostile foreign powers, Andrew would be as giddy as a schoolgirl.
Buyer’s Remorse, like Andrew, is a bitch.
