It's amazing how Obama has adopted the things Dems hated about Bush...


Yet support him.

LINK

I think the reason is Democrats are made up of a lot of single issue voters: health care, gay rights, etc. So they don't really care about continued wars, anti-terrorism laws, deficits, etc as long as their pet issue is addressed.

quote:

The twin pillars of Bush's record were counterterrorism policies and tax cuts. During his first term, it became clear that Obama would not dismantle most of the homeland security apparatus put into place by his predecessor. Despite a campaign in 2008 that focused on flaws with the nation's response to 9/11, Obama has kept most of the counterterrorism program intact.

Also,

Democrats love the "Bush Tax Cuts" so much they made them permanent for 98% of income earners.

Democrats love the Patriot Act.

They have expanded the ME wars into Libya and are threatening to expand them into Syria and Iran currently.



One area that comes to mind is the Dems are muuuuuch more militant on environmental policy than the GOP.

Dems = GOP^2

Here are the Senators who voted "yes" on this disaster of a tax and spending increase bill. How about giving them a call and let them know how you feel. The senate switchboard is (202) 224-3121:

Maybe because when it comes to REAL ISSUES, there is no political difference between the two parties.

I support the bill because it makes tax levels permanent for earnings below $400k. That's a pretty big deal. It also permanently fixes AMT. Yes I would have loved for the bill to be comprehensive and addresses spending.

They never really cared about any of that stuff. Democrats were not anti-war just anti-bush.

And it's amazing how many repubs think Obama is some far left socialist commie when a lot of his policies are just the same as previous administrations.

Bush's policies, at least the domestic ones were leftist.

No Child Left Behind, Prescription Drug Bill, Deficit Spending, TARP,etc...

Those weren't exactly conservative policies. Obama IS a leftist socialist commie pinko.
