Presidents of Future Passed
Since taking office President Obama has spent a lot of time trying to undo President Bush's executive work. Among the targets of his history re-writing campaign:
- banning torture (semantics here - you can bet in a quiet cave in the heart of nowhere if our boys need information that will save lives from a stubborn jihadi, they will get it)
- Closing Guantanamo (We're already seeing the foolishness behind this move)
- The unilateral drawdown of troops from Iraq (also known as "hanging our ally out to dry")
In his effort to pretend that the last 8 years never happened, Obama is going to end up throwing the baby out with the bath water. And here I thought that was Congress's job.
