Now They FINALLY Figure THIS Out?!

Bruce Bartlett

In late October, Bruce Bartlett failed to ruffle many feathers with his article, Obama is a Republican, something I’ve said (I believe) even more eloquently, right here, claiming that “Barack Obama has delivered G W Bush’s 3rd and 4th terms!"

Indeed Barack Obama continued ALL of his predecessor’s wars and prosecuted the “War on Terror” with vigor. Our troops left Iraq only because IRAQ refused to indemnify our soldiers against “acts of war,” threatening to prosecute American soldiers as street thugs. This past week, President Obama has pledged 1500 troops BACK into Iraq and wouldn’t say if that was enough.

The Obama administration prosecuted another war, not even on G W Bush’s radar (Libya), in fact LEADING from behind (using NATO allies to soften the blow to war weary America).

GITMO remains open to this day...some five years beyond the date Mr. Obama promised to close it.

President Obama has gone to court at least THREE times to defend and keep secret the NSA Surveillance Programs…programs he, himself campaigned AGAINST.

I laid out Bartlett’s entire thesis (wonder if he reads Alexandria) for him, including Obama’s cloning “Romneycare,” as the foundation of his national program.

But Bartlett, like myself, is far from the first to note Barack Obama’s “Bushiness,” some liberals/“progressives” had taken note even earlier, as Bartlett himself quotes Cornell West; “I think Cornel West nailed it when he recently charged that Obama has never been a real progressive in the first place. “He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit,” West said. “We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency.”

And thank god for it! Wall Street remains the engine of America and its profits sustain not only our mammoth government spending, BUT the retirements of millions of American citizens.
