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.

Update: PS: I found this comment on Don Surber's site. Maybe your party should re-read Article 1, section 9 of the Constitution.
