For most Democrats, what was considered creeping fascism under Bush is just good old-fashioned common sense when the president has a “D” beside his name.

Yes, it is a wonder. Blantant hypocrites. Well, I suppose that is a bit harsh because in order to be hypocritical, one must have principles in the first place and there's no evidence of that one the left.

The Paulite portions of the Tea Party will likely supply the opposition Douthat is looking for. PLus, there is a Repub,lican constituency for the elimination of the more obnoxious elements of the security state. (For example, I trust the GOP more than the Dems to do something about TSA obnoxiousness, once the reality of Osama's demise setas in...)

Their hypocrisy is something we need to shine the spotlight on and never turn it off ... I want to see campaign ads of Obama pre his being elected condeming all the things he himself is doing.

Bush,like most real leaders doesnt allow assassinations of leaders like the cia didnt before taking out 'tthe truth,'plames wonderful works attesting.O is a fascist,spreading drones form cia s failed afpak policy globally and/to assassinate leaders and their families(usually just the males,another agenda).O was against the war,never served govt and wouldnt answer the phone.Who is surprised?

Danube of Thought

I think back to when all the Dems who had been cheerleaders for taking out Saddam jumped ship in droves when things started going bad. "Bush lied" became their excuse for having gone along in the first place.

It's been all hypocrisy, all the time, ever since. Unprincipled, craven bastards.

Obama is easy about his identity in lots of things--policy, race... Just ask Steve Sailer: Obama's mom on her son's choice of racial identity.

Captain Hate

Troo 'dat, DoT. Not surprising that OBL thought he could wait us out; kind of surprising he didn't (assuming it still doesn't happen but I think the tide is flowing in a good direction).

Captain Hate

anduril that's a very interesting article; as in highly disturbing in looking at Toonces and Stanley Ann. Both come off as dysfunctional and broken characters, no doubt initially caused by Stanley Ann's weird lack of responsibility to provide for young needy Barry. Even though she was the source of the problems you can still kind of sympathize with her as Barry chooses to identify with his even bigger POS excuse for a father.

Btw, one of the commenters was wrong on Deval Patrick's father being a "black activist". In fact Pat Patrick was a, for lack of a better term, jazz saxophonist with Sun Ra's various Orchestras (or Arkestras in the vernacular). I'm sure Pat was a horrible father, as many absentee musicians are, but a very good player. Sun Ra was the ultimate auto-didact and extremely well read on a variety of topics (although almost always using what he read to support his nutjob theories; the continual peril of the self-read). When Ra was in Chicago the NOI was always trying to co-opt his ideas (a lot of his musicians had Islamic names) until he'd flummox them by referring to blacks as inferior or cursed. So referring to Deval's dad as a "black activist" at the very least sends the wrong message.

Anduril,

Terrific piece on BHO identifying as black. During the 2008 election, my son was a junior at Penn State. I asked him why there was so much support for BHO at a place like State College and he said they all want to vote for the "cool, black dude".

BHO figured it all out early.

Remember when leftists worried about the Imperial presidency? Democrats sure have changed their tune about the unitary executive theory:

"This event provides a case study of the effort by the Bush administration to expand presidential power. While most of the attention to this push has focused on national-security issues, it covers the gamut of domestic issues as well. A central pillar has been the so-called Unitary Executive Theory, which undercuts the ability of Congress to regulate the executive branch. (2008 - WH overruled EPA regulations)

There's a big difference between a shameless hypocrite and a weak human being.

Newt et al were weak human beings who failed to live up to their own standards, but at least they had standards and I'm sure they still respect those standards and felt shame about not living up to them. No victory laps and gloating in the breaking of them.

Do the hypocrites being discussed in this thread hold to one set of standards? NO they do not. Do they feel shame and remorse about not living up to that set of standards? NO they do not. The standards they purported to believe in and hold as near and dear were no such thing. It was just all feigned rhetorical phoney baloney and only hypocrites deliver phoney baloney masked as heartfelt conviction.

PD

Remember when leftists worried about the Imperial presidency?

Oh, yes. My former senator, Russ Feingold, often went into full-shriek mode, for example, referring to Bush as thinking he was King George.

Once Obama got into office and did the same thing, I waited to see what Feingold would have to say. Silence, because he'd gone into full-fellation mode.

Extraneus

We need a candidate who will make this point, and there are obviously many opportunities to do it. I made reference to Giuliani in the other thread, but he's one person who could take this hypocrisy to Obama in a painful way. I hope he gets in. He's not afraid to attack.

SEALs go from superhero to sex symbol

Ever since an elite unit of Navy SEALs stormed a fortresslike compound near Islamabad, Pakistan, and killed Osama bin Laden, people can’t get enough of the SEALs. There are some who want to know what it’s like to be one, and others who want to know what it takes to become one.

 The elite unit that took out Osama bin Laden deploys from a tiny military facility in Dam Neck, Va.

Then, there are those who want to know what it might be like to, well, “be” with one.

It's not just the ladies here, apparently.

bunkerbuster

Says it all that Tom cites a noted, mainstream lefty's slagging of Obama to point out that mainstream lefties who slagged Bush aren't slagging Obama. And the commenters here are in such a deep stupor of denial, they don't even recognize the ruse.
As usual, the comments about what liberals think are based on wingnut representations of liberal views, not on what liberals are actually saying. Five minutes on Google yields:

Robert Scheer, veteran LA Times journalist, ubiquitous lefty commentator: `` Barack Obama is betraying his promise of change and is in danger of becoming just another political hack.''

Alex Cockburn, writing in The Independent:
`` Obama wants to enlarge the armed services by 90,000. He pledges to escalate the US war in Afghanistan; to attack Pakistan's territory if it obstructs any unilateral US mission to kill Osama bin Laden; and to wage a war against terror in a hundred countries, creating a new international intelligence and law enforcement "infrastructure" to take down terrorist networks. A fresh start? Where does this differ from Bush's commitment on 20 September 2001, to an ongoing "war on terror" against "every terrorist group of global reach" and "any nation that continues to harbour or support terrorism"?

Gore Vidal, historical novelist, former senate candidate, owner of W.F. Buckley: `` “I was like everyone else when Obama was elected – optimistic. Everything we had been saying about racial integration was vindicated. But he’s incompetent. He will be defeated for re-election. It’s a pity because he’s the first intellectual president we’ve had in many years, but he can’t hack it. He’s not up to it. He’s overwhelmed. '…“Obama is doing dreadfully. I was hopeful. He was the most intelligent person we’ve had in that position for a long time. But he’s inexperienced. He has a total inability to understand military matters. He’s acting as if Afghanistan is the magic talisman: solve that and you solve terrorism.''
Ryan Lizza has a 5,000 word assessment of Obama's foreign policy in the May 2 New Yorker magazine which is objective, so includes several layers of criticism of Obama for not bringing the promised change in foreign policy.
Examples abound. The indelible fact is that liberals are hugely disappointed with Obama's foreign policy and consider it a massive failure on point after point.
My own views are similar: O's Afghanistan policy has been a massive failure and a huge disappointment. The policy has succeed only in enriching power brokers in the country who will turn on us as soon as we stop funneling cash to them.
On Gitmo: while blame for the failure to close Gitmo falls largely on conservatives in Congress who whipped up anti-Muslim fear and credibly vowed to block placing any detainees in their states/districts, I still fault Obama for proving unwilling to spend any discernible political capital on the issue. To the extent that he did push back, he was ineffective, and deserves criticism for that as well.
On the Patriot Act, Obama waffled, plain and simple. To my knowledge, there were no mitigating circumstances. My guess is that Obama very cynically calculated that, were there any terrorist attacks, his opposition to the Patriot Act would be held against him at great political cost, while his flip-flop on the issue wouldn't hurt him much at all with his base supporters, given their only credible option would be to vote for Republicans, who would, given the chance, make the Patriot Act even more Big Brother-like.
I don't know of any liberal who is an enthusiastic supporter of Obama's foreign policy. All are disappointed not just with his foreign policy choices, but his seeming fecklessness in using the bully pulpit on issues like Gitmo.
Where I tend to depart from almost all the liberals I know is that I have much lower expectations for public officials and, indeed, for democracy in general. Presidents never make big changes because they can't. Moreover, democracy, as a process, weeds out people who actually believe in making big changes in favor of lowest-common-denominator sloganeers. This is why the most meaningful measure of Obama's success is not against his own promises, but against the performance of his predecessors. And on that score, Obama is doing much, much better than Bush in supporting liberal values. I'm sure even wingnuts would agree on that…

Rocco

I certainly understand why most are concerned about the TSA shaking down babies and I agree that we should be profiling. But I also have to say that I've seen parents try to smuggle drugs into prison in their babies diapers and it happens more than you'd think. I once got a tip from a rat that a new man had smuggled 60 bags of heroine into the jail in his rectum. Forgive me for being crude here but that's the reality. Defendants in criminal trials often know when they're going to jail so they'll put a package in the safe as it's referred to. When we shook that inmate down he had 45 bags of heroine, a half oz of pot, a bic lighter, a crack pipe, 20 cigarettes and a package of rolling papers...all "in the safe."

Espousing values you don't really hold makes you a hypocrite.

Obama is doing much, much better than Bush in supporting liberal values

I'm enough of an antiquarian that I tend to think of "liberal" as having something to do with liberty, but that's a losing battle. In the modern vernacular sense of "liberal values" meaning "anti-American values", spending money that doesn't exist, placing oppressive burdens on law-abiding citizens and businesses, alienating allies, allying with aliens, yes, Obama is doing much more of all that than any President before him.

I have a question for you, though. One finds so few true believers left these days, and I've been dying to ask one of you: what do you think has been the smartest thing Obama has done in office? Not just the most important thing, or the thing with which you agree the most; what has he done that made you think, "that worked brilliantly, and I would never have thought of it"?

NBC/WSJ:

"Only 37 percent approve of the president’s handling of the economy, while 58 percent disapprove.

"Also, just 31 percent believe the economy will improve in the next 12 months, compared with 43 percent who think it will stay the same and another 25 percent who say it will get worse.

"These economic numbers, GOP pollster McInturff says, underscore the “tremendous anchor the economy is to the president’s job standing.”…

"The good: The U.S. economy added 268,000 private-sector jobs in April, the most since 2006. The bad: Average gasoline prices have reached nearly $4 per gallon, and the unemployment rate increased from 8.8 percent to 9.0 percent."

And get this: the sample was 43% Dem, 31% GOP.

My criteria used to be: live up to impossible standards. I can't, but it makes me feel good to drag along on your coattails. Now, I'm older, I don't care what the neighbors or the old biddies think. I do not see morality or immorality as an issue with gas prices, or CEO salaries, or interrogations, etc. I'm far too pragmatic and the older I get the more my attitude is, do whatever it takes, just get 'er done! And, if some politician wants to play kinky in his private life, more power to him or her. I much prefer people of action and high energy, those who live life to the fullest and not those who have spent their lives in some box, passing judgment on the rest of us and then making up all kinds of rules to suit their version of morality.

"If investigations or new regulation or legislation restricts servicers’ use of MERS, our counterparties may be required to record all mortgage transfers in land records, incurring additional costs and time in the recordation process"

Bgates asks: ``What do you think has been the smartest thing Obama has done in office? Not just the most important thing, or the thing with which you agree the most; what has he done that made you think, "that worked brilliantly, and I would never have thought of it"?
Nothing I can think of sails through all three of those goalposts, but, then again, that goes for all presidents in my lifetime. I would never expect a president to make decisions that would surprise me as to their intelligence. On all the issues, the choices tend to be rather clear and the challenge is almost always to have the courage to do the right thing, rather than the popular thing and to have the skill -- not exactly the same as intelligence -- to successfully argue your case in public.
I do think Obama's appointment of Hillary Clinton as Sec. of State instead of veep was a very shrewd move that has worked out brilliantly. I was a vehement supporter of Hillary for veep, so, indeed, it would not have occurred to me to name her to state but I don't think the decision shows Obama's intelligence so much as his extremely moderate split-the-half-down-the-middle political style.
I would also point O's appointment of Jon Huntsman, a Republican governor, as ambassador to China. Not sure that's necessarily a call that shows surprising intelligence, but it does show that O's confident enough in his own ideology to base his decisions on things like the fact that Huntsman speaks mandarin and has solid experience in China, rather than simply naming a partisan hack to the post.
It is an interesting question, though, bgates. I have to say I'd love to hear what you think are Bush's smartest decisions that surprised you and you would have never thought of...Surely you have those right at hand, right???

bgates

I'd love to hear what you think are Bush's smartest decisions....

Why?

On all the issues, the choices tend to be rather clear

Was the choice to bomb Libya clear? Was the choice to wait as long as we did obvious? Was it unquestionably the right thing to seek UN but not Congressional approval, announce American military involvement during a junket outside the country, make it clear that we were not trying to topple Khadaffy....?

the challenge is almost always to have the courage to do the right thing, rather than the popular thing

For instance, while it would be popular for unemployment or deficits to be as low as they were during the Bush presidency, Obama has the courage to do serious long-term harm to America.

Pager: They have just admitted MERS titles haven't been recorded and aren't worth the paper they are written on.

Sorry, but they admitted no such thing. I believe they are required to outline possible risks the company faces in these reports but that in no way consitutes an admission in the manner you suggest. I'm no fan of the MERS system but I'm not aware of any Appeals level Cts that have held MERS held mortgages to be invalid as a matter of course.

I suppose a JOM post where Glenn Greenwald swerves into unexpected consistency is the proper place to comment about infamous Palin hater Andree McLeod doing the same.

The aide used State E-mails as sources in his book, and since McLeod has already brought umpteen Ethic's Charges against Palin for using those same State E-mails, she now wants this guy hounded as well.

I may not like his take on conservatism but I don't fault his sincerity.

By the opposite token, hypocrites know full well they are lying when they do their demogoguing. The character assassins who went after Bush are now amply proving that their attacks never had any grounding in honest conviction whatsoever.
