The left was completely unhinged during the Bush Presidency and for a while, I actually thought they might be serious and not simply posturing for political purposes. Silly me.
In the last 24 hours, President Obama has conducted a federal raid that nabbed 2900 illegal aliens, shut down a marijuana dispensory in Phoenix and assassinated a US Citizen who allegedly had ties to Al Qaeda.
The silence of the left is deafening. Obama's conduct of these activities is much more aggressive than Bush's. Seriously, mass deportations, assassinating US Citizens abroad? And don't forget the invasion of Libya, stepped up drone attacks, signing statements, more aggressive stance in Afghanistan...not to mention permanent detentions in Guantanamo.
So for all those who whined about the Cowboy Presidency of George W. Bush, I simply say...Suckers!
Post Script: If you want to get an idea of how controversial it is to assassinate an American abroad, check out this article from the Wall Street Journal.
Federal investigators needed a judge's permission to wiretap Anwar al-Awlaki, an American who became a leader in Yemen's al Qaeda affiliate. But to kill him in a drone strike Friday, the government could do so unilaterally.
