Talking to several democrats, I have noticed that the crowd who liked Obama in 2008 still can’t accept that he has kept very few of his campaign promises. They claim that he is doing great, and is a better president than Bush. I will here point out some basic facts about Obama, and why he IS Bush.
- Barrack Obama campaigned on ending the prison at Guantanamo Bay. He has failed to do this. Barrack Obama has kept Bush’s prison open.
- Barrack Obama has campaigned on ending the unconstitutional Patriot Act. The Patriot Act is an infringement on our privacy, liberties, has been abused, and has shredded the constitution to pieces.
- Candidate Obama said he would work to bring our troop home. His loyal followers say that his foreign policy is very different from George Bush’s. If you think about it though, is simply shifting the troops around really changing anything? Obama’s foreign policy is almost identical to George Bush’s. Obama shouldn’t have gotten the Nobel Peace Prize. He should have gotten impeached as a war criminal.
- Obama not only continued Bush’s wars, he has started one of his own. But hey, this one war good because he’s a Democratic president right?
- Obama has continued spending money we don’t have, printing money we shouldn’t be printing, bailing out corporations, bombing the middle east, and governing like a dictator.
