Where is the Outrage?

Venezuela is unhappy with Obama.

“Is there a new government in the United States or is it Bush still in power? Obama seems to be a continuation of the Bush era. But it doesn’t matter to me. Regardless of US imperialism, this revolution will continue its course,” [Hugo] Chavez said in a speech.

Iran is unhappy with Obama.

Iran’s U.N. Ambassador Mohammad Khazaee didn’t attend the latest U.N. Security Council meeting on Iraq. But the moment the 3-hour session was over the Iranian delegation was circulating a strongly worded letter from Khazaee that had a very clear message for the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama: Stop talking like Bush.

Civil libertarians are unhappy with Obama.

When the Obama administration last week claimed that the executive’s “state secrets” privilege requires dismissal of a case challenging the Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping program, the move rang alarm bells.

In fact, Obama is determined to maintain many more Bush policies than expected.

He maintains Bush policies, except, of course, in the cases of abortion – which, if enforced, will compel Catholic hospitals to close their doors – and the economy – where, apparently, Obama is determined to stem the tide of entrepreneurship..

Can’t say it wasn’t expected. Although, frankly, McCain is handily proving that he is as much of a pansy-ass as he ever was.

  1. So, if considered from the perspective of a Bush supporter, this post is mostly a compliment, right?

  3. I don’t know what the hell Obama’s been waiting for to address these things. I mean, someone is going to have to tell me what the heck he thinks is more important than these things right now.
