Haven’t we heard this somewhere before?

From Hot Air:

The exact quote from the Barack Obama-era Department of Justice? “Having considered the matter, the government adheres to its previously articulated position.” The DoJ and the DoD consider Bagram detainees “unlawful combatants” without any rights to access the US court system and with no recourse for release.

I’d like one liberal Bush-hating fuckhead to tell me why this is fine now but not when Bush did it. I want just one cogent, complete, concise, intelligently thought-out argument to convince me they are not the biggest bunch of lying sack-of-shit hypocrites the world has ever seen.

Just one. Have at it.

  1. I think the problem here is that we are always preaching to the choir. Liberals don’t care what we have to say.

    Besides, even if they do listen, their favorite motto comes into play: “Don’t confuse me with the facts. My mind is already made up.”

  2. Where are those who visit babalu to take issue with us?
    Here’s a perfect opportunity for them to try to defend the indefensible.

  3. Cripes, George!

    PLEASE tell me you’re NOT sitting there holding your breath on this one, hun.

    BTW, how you gonna spend your $65 dollars more a month … Comrades?

  4. More evidence that there is no such thing as Bush policy or Obama policy. There is simply policy, dictated by those who fund our elections and decide which pair of shills we get to choose from.

    The only real changes that we have seen in the last 30 years are ones that consolidate more and more power to the federal government, and that is certainly going to continue and apparently accelerate under a President who’s stopped even really trying to deny that he’s a socialist.

    The circumstances are very different, and I’m really not trying to make a direct comparison between the US and Cuba – at the risk of violating Godwin’s Law there are way too many similarities between what we’ve allowed to go on there and pre-WWII Europe – but in many ways our country is being stolen from us, too, and has been since FDR. We’re not being murdered or banished, thank God, but in the end the results won’t be all that much different from where Cuba or Venezuela end up.

  5. Sorry,
    I can’t say there is no difference – that there is only policy. Bush didn’t go to Aminajad and reassure him we mean him no harm. Bush called that government evil, period. Ditto Syria, venezuela, Cuba and anyone else Obama will cozy up to. Bush knew who were our friends and who were not.
    As for economic policies, I diskliked many of Bush’s choices. But please do not try to compare Obama with Bush here. Bush lowered taxes and wanted to make the cuts permanent but was prevented by the lefties. Bush tried to get oversight for Fannie and Freddie in 2002 but Barnie Frank said nonsense. Bush wanted to privatize social security and health insurance choices. Obama wants to socialize everything. Bush understood about Israel. I doubt Obama will do the same.
    As often as Bush disappointed me, I wish he could be our president now instead of this power grabbing, clueless socialist and his cohorts in congress and the msm.
