I do not believe the Democrats regarding the Torture Memos: Prove me wrong

Dear President Obama:

You saw fit to open up the door to lead American from a Republic to an Empire, now you are telling us that you want to prosecute the guilty involved with the "Torture memos,"

I call bullshit.

The same people who are indigent over President Bush are the same people who spent 8 years going for President Bush's neck. I detail it here. Read it, you might learn history did not begin on January 20, 2009.

Even before I was born, Democrats have created a version of Orwell's INGSOC, for my lifetime I have seen the Democrats re-create the Two Minute Hate. Let me relay the list of people that Democrats need to hate:

William F. Buckley, President Eisenhower, President Nixon (still kicking the corpse), Henry Kissinger, President Ford, President Reagan, Judge Bork (which became a political term), President George H.W. Bush, Vice President Dan Quayle, Lee Atwater, Justice Thomas, Speaker Gingrich, House Leader Delay, Senate Leader Dodd, President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and House Whip Eric Cantor.

Try typing on a Left wing Blog or go on MSNBC saying you support any of those people, and see a re-creation of the Two Minute Hate.

President Obama, you claimed the mantle of "Bi-partisanship," as a way of getting things done. If you need help with that, I have a few posts that can lead you.

Here's another reason why I called Bullshit on your exercise. During the period of time it was in use, Democratic members (and leaders) were informed and signed off on it, no matter their claim of ignorance today.

If you were serious about "stopping torture," the Democrats involved would be publicly chastised. They aren't. You aren't

All this "torture memo," issue is about is hanging President Bush. President Bush is your Emmanuel Goldstein. If he isn't, prove me wrong. I have not seen anyone upset about these torture memos attack Speaker Pelosi. When they start, then I will believe.

All I believe right now, is that you are fomenting a Civil war if you go forward with only Republicans on the pike. Prove me wrong.

Mr. President, if you are serious about Bi-partisanship, speak up. NOW IS THE TIME.

  1. The same people who are indigent over President Bush?

    We're all indigent over President Bush, baby. Deal with it.

  2. If you are a Liberal Democrat you have been after President Bush's head since December 12, 2000. This is just a Political move, it does not help with President Obama's so-called "Bi-partisan" ventures.

    Show me when you folks haven't gone after President Bush.

    You have not proved my theory wrong. Game, set, match.

  3. You just know there were plenty of Dems with knowledge of the torture and they won't hear a word about it. Why? This isn't about fair, right, wrong, justice or any of that -- it's a straight-up political game. It's a game played by people who hate our bastards but adore the ones they put in charge.

    Bipartisanship? That's just code for "do whatever we want lest you be labeled an obstructionist."

    Sickening, yeah?

  4. I have to say that these last few elections have taken some very strange turns and now dissent etc. has become a criminal act. I personally am of the opinion that whereas there may be some problems with the Bush policies, it's not worthy of a criminal investigation, especially in light of our current economic situation amongst other things.

  5. I have no doubt that both the Republicans and Democrats knew about the tactics used by the CIA and others to extract information to assume otherwise would be fallacious.

    Having said that I think that the proposed prosecutions of Bush Administration officials will come to naught.

    Solicitor General Kagan has been instructed by the Obama administration to adopt a stance similar to that taken by the Bush Administration regarding the detainees at Bagram Theater Internment Facility.

    As such it seems unlikely that prosecutions of Bush Administration officials will proceed in this climate because, the administration does not want to be percieved as being vulnerable to attack for committing a hypocritical act.
