Hypocritic conflict

So this whole Libyan war/kinetic operation or what ever you want to call it. It seems to me there is a bit of hypocrisy going on here with the Democrats. They howled when Bush was fighting a legal war, OKed by congress. Now some ten odd years later we have this Libyan, non-war, conflict thing… no support from congress yet, the Democrats are all jumping to Obama’s defense. I think this is another example of the “our guy can do no wrong” kind of attitude a lot of people seem to have for Obama. They hold a double standard. They must think to themselves that “well he’s Obama, I trust him, he must know what he’s doing.” When it was Bush they looked for a conspiracy under every cow patty.

Now I’m not a big fan of Bush either, I don’t like war in generally and only believe it should be used in defense. Bush’s idea of preemptive defense is ridicules. You should never attack another country unless you know they are attacking you or are in the process. I just find lying and hypocrisy to be very detestable. If they were picketing about Bush’s wars they should be doing the same with Obama’s.

Now this doesn’t only apply to the Democrats, it applies to the Republicans too. Usually the Republicans come out saying the war powers resolution is unconstitutional, but now when it’s Obama getting us into a war they say “we’ll yeah maybe it’s unconstitutional, but he should follow it anyway.” Why the sudden flip-flop hmmm?

These rediculas dishonest political games really irritate me. Why can we have people who are actually honest and want to do the right thing running the government? Oh yeah sorry I forgot, disingenuous lier seems to be a prerequisite for public office.
