Conservatives hate that Obama has been successful (Got that?)
The Northwest Indiana Times ^ | June 15, 2014 | Carl Nyberg

Conservatism is completely irresponsible. Conservatives howled President Barack Obama wasn't doing enough for Bowe Bergdahl. Now, in a move that would make George Orwell blush, conservatives are now attacking Bergdahl.

This is another hallmark of conservatism. The truth is flexible. Conservatism's enemy is Obama (or Bill Clinton before) and the Democrats. If the truth needs to be changed, so be it.

Conservatives demanded zero accountability from the Bush administration. 9/11? Failure to find Osama bin Laden? Mismanagement of Iraq and Afghanistan? Torture? Bad WMD intelligence? Conservatives looked the other way and made excuses.

But Bergdahl, an E-3, an exceedingly low rank, is being pilloried for things he may (or may not) be responsible for by conservatives because they want to deny Obama an accomplishment.

Conservatives would rather attack Bergdahl than hold accountable the Republicans they vote for. Obama has been more successful than Bush, and conservatives hate it.

Actually, I believe Bergdahl is an E-5 promotable.

Carl Nyberg is certifiable!

Articles that explain how modern liberals suffer from a mental disorder.

He HAS been successful. Everything he touches seems to turn to shit, and be the opposite of what a sane president would do, but he wants t that way. And too much of the country and too much of the repugnican't party is too cowardly to stop him, or they are actually democrats in disguise.

Yeah, right, sure, you betcha. Just as soon as his reverse Midas touch kicks off and he quits being the ultimate fecal totalizer, let me know. Then I can start disliking him for his success...unless he has been trying to make such a cluster **** of everything, and then the headline premise would be correct.

Wow, this guy loves to hang on to the Myth that everything is Bush’s fault.

9/11 happened about exactly 8 months after Bush took office and thanks to Gore’s pointless lawsuits Bush spent weeks organizing his cabinet which should have happened in the weeks after Election Day and before inauguration day. So Bush was dealing with recounts and then playing ketchup when he might have been getting briefed on the status of terrorism and world affairs thanks to Leftist dirty politics.

Well as far as WMD the Left still follows the script that Iraq never had chemical weapons after the First Gulf War (thanks to a biased Leftist MSM). It is completely ignored that there were convoys of trucks exiting Iraq in to Syria as the US and its allies invaded Iraq. Also ignored is how Syria had huge stockpiles of chemical weapons when Syrian rebels’ started making Assad’s life interesting. I wonder where those weapons came from. Things that make you go Hmmm.

Mismanagement of Iraq and Afghanistan? When Bush left office both were certainly more stable than they are now. Oh and by the way; Bush never summarily executed a US citizen with a drone fired missile did he?

Bush-43 bailed out big banks with taxpayer money
Bush-43 began another entitlement for prescription meds.
Bush-43 began Iraq war and now we have a bigger problem.
Saddam was keeping the jihadists under control.
Bush-43 increased federal spending on education giving
more power to the unions.
Bush-43 did nothing to to build a fence on the border.
Bush-43 gave us Obummer.

No more Bushes! Jeb Bush will be at bottom of my list for 2016.

Uumm, what?

I don’t give a damn if Bergdahl was a slick sleeve. He deserted his post and cost lives.

Obama is a freakin’ Moslem Marxist. I don’t compromise with Moslims, or Marxists. Cry to me when your journolista job drys up.

You make me laugh by posting this crazy stuff.

Obama is the one who gets the free pass on everything because he is a black Dem,

If Bush or McCain or Romney was POTUS the media would be reporting all these stories they bury daily to protect Obama.

Naturally. It’s almost fun to watch their pretzel logic and shenanigans on display. I do like to mix in the crazy every 5th or 6th story. You’re on to me.

All true.

It was not my intention to defend Bush but to point out the hypocrisy of the Leftist’s comments deriding Bush and claiming that Obama is a success.

Oh so not true.
We want Obama to own that he released 5 murdering terrorists scumbags for 1 deserting US soldier. Yes indeed I want Obama to claim that accomplishment!

This is an example of throwing stuff so outrageous at your opponents, you put them on the defensive trying to respond to everything.

It is best ignored.

Which conservatives were howling? I didn’t even know we HAD a soldier in captivity until he was released.

Of course, I might well have wanted us to work at getting him released.

I complain about getting potholes filled in my street, but if the response was to schedule a one-month street closure to tear up the entire section and start over, I’d probably complain about that decision as well, and it wouldn’t make me a hypocrite.

Let's not let the facts get in the way of a foaming at the mouth liberal rant. The more puny Bergdahl is painted,the more eeeevil conservatives appear for bashing Obama...or something.
