5 ways Obama voters are political hypocrites

October 31, 2012 

If you called President George W. Bush a liar when no significant WMDs were discovered in Iraq due to poor intel, but think President Barack Obama was simply being prudent in first blaming a little-seen video for the murdered Americans in Libya, then you are a hypocrite.

If you called Bush a coward for “hiding” in the Air National Guard and not going to Vietnam, but give Obama a pass on the fact that he has not served a single day in the military, then you are a hypocrite.

If you agreed with then-Sen. Obama when he called Bush unpatriotic for adding to the national debt, but think Obama is doing the right thing by spending us into oblivion, then you are a hypocrite.

If you cursed Bush for the war in Afghanistan, for the Guantanamo detainees, and the work our intelligence services and Special Operations forces did to kill terrorists, but applauded Obama for merely being in the right place at the right time when Osama Bin Laden was killed, then you are a hypocrite.

If you didn’t vote for Bush because of any of the above reasons, but are voting for Obama this year, then you are a hypocrite.
