Comments on: Obama official takes shots at Bush’s words http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/08/06/obama-official-takes-shots-at-bushs-words/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: brian lee http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/08/06/obama-official-takes-shots-at-bushs-words/comment-page-1/#comment-394665 Mon, 10 Aug 2009 06:28:17 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=18881#comment-394665 thanks for reading my posting getplaning that,s an encouragement,hope some of it is sinking in. Unlike this Brennan guy who seems to have a different slant to suit the president in power.nice to see reuters printing a posting for their liberal sweetheart that would with out any question have resulted with “INVALID”for me or TC,but whether you get this or not we will press on as churchill said “we will fight you on the beaches” signing off from cash strapped CA.

Bush was in office only two months when 9-11 occurred?
Don’t you mean bush had been on vacation only two months when 9-11 occurred?

WE must stand up against these demons or they will be living in our backyards.

Another example is the use of the word “crusade” by the Bush administration. “Crusade” has the about the same meaning for muslims as “holocaust” has for Jews (since muslims were the target of the historical crusades).
Bush and his wordsmith Karl Rove were undoubtedly smart enough to know this, so why did they do it anyway?

You make the call. Conservatives?

Oh you must be talking for example about Iran contra, when Ronnie “I spoke the truth although the facts proved I did not” Reagan bribed Iran with weapons. Or when his administration decided it was also wise to give both Saddam and the Mujahideen in Afghanistan (predecessors of the Taliban) enormous amounts of weapons. Of course in Conservative Ideology those events are cynically judged by a different standard.

You naughty conservatives… Always screwing up and blaming own sins and mistakes on “the liberals”. *Evil..;)*

I thought Obama was supposed to be the “healer”, but instead his administration has created even deeper rifts in America. Also, Obama should not allow his presidency to be compared to Bush’s. This comparison will only hurt him in the long run.

Bush was in office just 2 months when 9/11 occured? How do you figure that? He was in office for 8 months prior to 9/11, during which he dismissed the urgent warnings of national security professionals regarding the threat of terrorism, preferring instead to focus on an imagined threat from Iraq.
