    I think it is a legitimate criticism to say

    Erick, where were "conservatives" when Bush put 2 wars on the credit card called the national debt? You were partying like there was no tomorrow. Where were you when 9-11 was used as an excuse for the Patriot Act and other massive intrusions into Americans' privacy and liberty?
    But the same can be said of liberals too.

    Obama has largely continued or escalated the war on drugs, the war on terror, illegal drone strokes, illegal spying on Americans, and waging a war on whistleblowers.

    Those that were up in arms when Bush II did these things have fallen back asleep now that "their guy" is in power.

    The problem is systemic.
