Not true whatsoever. What set the stage for Obama, as you put it, was so-called real conservatives abandoning President Bush and the Republicans in droves beginning shortly after the 2004 election. At that time, the conservative media, in an attempt to show that they were independent of Republicans, flogged multiple anti-Bush and anti-Republican issues. "RINO" hunts, Harriet Miers, illegal immigration, backlashes against a few Republican scandalettes, etc., led to Dem takeover of Congress in 2006. In particular, the "RINO" hunts severely hurt any chance for a strong Republican to win the 2008 nomination, opening the door for the has-been and never-was McCain. The rest, as they say, is history.
As for getting the truth out there about Iraq, President Bush is only one man. After Katrina, he was an exhausted, burned out man. Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear could recognize it in him.
Where was his party? Where were Republicans and conservatives in and out of government and media? Where were grass roots Republicans and conservatives? Where was support, assistance, and understanding from them? Where was the Right's pushback agains the Left's lies? Why did they take their eyes off the most important "ball" of our times? How come they weren't out there helping to counter the Left's lies? Hmmmm?
Lastly, all of the documents Wikileaks got from that traitor who stole them are classified to protect sources, operational information, and so on. The truth is our soldiers did NOT find large stockpiles of WMD. Traces and small quantities here and there, yes, but no the large stockpiles. Anyone who knows recent history didn't need President Bush to tell them Saddam Hussein not only had, but used WMD. Similarly anyone who knows recent history doesn't need President Bush to tell them about the UN's, France's and Russia's duplicity in the Hussein WMD saga.
The truth has always been available. What we've just learned from Wikileaks is details, not genuinely new information. Why do we -- any of us -- not howl down the deliberate disinformation campaign of the so-called 9/11 truthers? Hmmm? Every human being on the planet who had access to a television that day, and who was old enough to understand what they were seeing, saw those planes fly into those towers with their own two beady eyes. So where is the raging backlash against the obvious lies of the "truther" movement? We muster rage against the firing of Juan Williams, but none against the worst disinformation campaign of modern times. You going to blame President Bush for that also? Hmmmm?
It is true. Very true. What you said after the above sentence is also very true as well.
