Every move Obama has made has one underlying consistent theme to it: He's doing exactly what Bush would want him to do.
Promise to withdraw from Iraq? Well, hold on here! What would Bush do? (WWBD) Bush would put Gates in charge. Check.
Banks have porked our economy. WWBD? Bush would bail them out. Check.
Demands for investigations into Bush's wrongdoings. WWBD? Bush would want to nix those investigations. Check.
And now, today, Obama has an economic disaster on his hands. The obvious solution that history teaches us is that the Government is America's friend. That, as FDR said, "we are not alone." But instead of learning from greater men that came before him, Obama asks: "What would Bush do?"
And the neocon answer is obvious: curtail spending on all "non-security" expenditures. In short, everything the neocons believe the government should keep its hands out of, he wants to freeze spending on that. Pentagon or Homeland Security? Those neocon and conservative darlings that the right just can't spend enough money on?
He's all for leaving spending on that alone.
Obama, ladies and gentlemen, has just shown us his true colors. Anyone still have any doubts that this man was a plant by the GOP? Hell, he might as well switch parties right now and quit pretending. Allthis talk of biparisanship has always just been code for "do what the Republicans want". Was in the 80's. Still is today.
Actions speak louder than words.
On every major issue, this president has asked WWBD? And then that's exactly what he's done.
