Did the left not call for heads to roll after Abu Grahib?

Didn't we hear screaming about how the Pentagon (and thereby Bush) allowed this to happen, and even created an environment where it could take place? Yes, I believe we did.
The cognitive dissonance must be overwhelming. Just in the past 3 years we've had Republicans fighting against tax cuts,
The GOP was not "fighting against tax cuts" and you damn well know it.
Where, in Libya? On the contrary, Congress was practically begging to support that mission. And are Republicans not allowed to oppose intervention?
and the largest handout in history to the insurance companies through Bob Dole's 1994 healthcare plan finally come to fruition.
Yeah, because those plans were the same. They were both rammed through Congress with bribes and parliamentary tricks.
That following 8 years of making excuses for GWB trying to somehow connect Iraq to 9/11--it's no wonder they can't come to grips with the idea that I find pissing on dead Talibani deplorable and demand anyone who knew be fully held accountable.
Not this shit again. GWB mentioned Iraq and 9/11 in the same paragraph! The same sentence! He must have been trying to create the impression they were involved! Let's just ignore that 9/11 changed the way we perceived Saddam and threats in general. Nothing to see here.
I think they know just how awful GWB was.
Yeah, man...thinks SUCKED during Bush.
I think they know he lied to the public to go to war,
That charge has never even made sense.
skyrocketing our debt while keeping it off the books to make it seem like the deficits that were already being run up weren't nearly as bad as they were.
You mean the debt that was less in 8 years than Obama's in 3.5? That debt? You mean the deficit that is now 4 times higher than before? That deficit? You are a joke.
I think they know he didn't represent their ideals but can't bear to show weakness or a lack of solidarity. I think they've channeled all of that rage and unfairly directed it toward Obama, desperately wanting to rewrite history and get a do-over in 2012--except all of their candidates suck huge donkey balls...and they know that, too. That makes them froth even harder.
Let me get this straight: Conservative anger at Bush as been unfairly directed at Obama?
Wow. That's a new one. I'm sure it nothing to do with the fact that Obama has been a disaster as President. Debt. Deficits. Unemployment. Class warfare rhetoric. Out of control growth of government. Feckless, politically motivated foreign and military policy. Abuse of states' rights. Failure to address immigration. A rammed-through, bloated trillion-dollar healthcare bill that nobody wants. Bowing to foreign leaders. Apologizing for America on foreign soil. Calling Americans soft and lazy. A radical, racist first lady who believes we live in a "mean" country, tells people to eat healthy, then gets photographed sucking down cheeseburgers on her $500,00 vacation while being called "her highness."
Let me repeat. If Obama knew about this and covered it up, he should be tried as a war criminal. Period. No equivocations.
Not good enough, not according to the Left. Obama must be impeached. Panetta must be tried for war crimes. Right? RIGHT?
