If hypocrisy was a crime, Democrats would be looking at the death penalty [Reader Post]

The words uttered by Democrats over the last few weeks are nothing short of mind boggling in their flaming hypocrisy and the more they speak the worse it gets. Some are on the edge of comical, but many are worth revisiting.

Let’s start with Howard Dean:

I do not believe the President should have been given a green light to drive our nation into conflict without the case having first been made to Congress and the American people for why this war is necessary, and without a requirement that we at least try first to work through the United Nations…

Hillary Clinton:

If the administration believes that any, any use of force against Iran is necessary, the president must come to Congress to seek that authority,”

“It would be a mistake of historical proportion if the administration thought that the 2002 resolution authorizing force against Iraq was a blank check for the use of force against Iran without further congressional authorization”

“We continue to experience the consequences of unchecked presidential action,” she said, later adding: “This president was allowed for too long to commit blunder after blunder under cover of darkness provided by an allied Republican Congress”

Joe Biden:

“I want to make it clear. And I made it clear to the President that if he takes this nation to war with Iran without Congressional approval. I will make it my business to impeach him. That’s a fact. That is a fact.”

Can any of you Obama supporters tell us why this a particularly stupid statement by the long time member of the Senate Judiciary?

Nancy Pelosi:

“Bush needs approval to invade Iran.”

Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.

The president led us into the Iraq war on the basis of unproven assertions without evidence; he embraced a radical doctrine of pre-emptive war unprecedented in our history; and he failed to build a true international coalition.

(We’ll visit that again)

Cenk Uygar/Gary Ackerman:

On his MSNBC show this evening, Cenk Uygur suggested that opposition to President Obama’s Libya policy is “unpatriotic.” For good measure, Dem congressman Gary Ackerman stated that opposing the president is “cheering for the wrong team.”

Nancy Pelosi: Dissent is patriotic.

Barbara Boxer:

“This is different,” Boxer said Wednesday. Today, “you’re facing a dictator who vowed” widespread slaughter in his own country, she said, adding that Obama “did the right thing.”

Note: Saddam killed a estimated one million Iraqis

And the Hypocrite-in-Chief

Now let me be clear: I suffer no illusions about Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal man. A ruthless man. A man who butchers his own people to secure his own power…. The world, and the Iraqi people, would be better off without him.

But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors…and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.

No system of government can or should be imposed by one nation by any other.

The good news for Democrats is that they’re not alone.


Obama is committed to partnering with other countries rather than going it alone as did his predecessor George W. Bush, which both broadens and complicates the decision-making process.

Fact: Bush Had 2 Times More Coalition Partners in Iraq Than Obama Has in Libya

But Al-Reutzeera finally did define the Obama doctrine;

Stung by accusations that it has sent mixed messages on Middle East events, the White House has said it is putting together a new, overarching strategy that will set out basic principles of U.S. policy toward the region.

In other words, the Obama Doctrine can be described this way:

Ready, Fire, Aim.

If hypocrisy was a crime we’d be bombing Reuters, the White House and the DNC headquarters instead of Libya.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Yup blasted, he’s a puke cannon lover. Called him a hero IIRC. Maybe it’s just me, but I won’t call someone a hero that is an anti-semite and nazi sympathizer. Ivan is even a bigger POS than you.
    So call Ivan a breath of fresh air all you want, it only goes to show your lack of character and willingness to support anyone who spews hatered towards the GOP.
    Back on your meds now blasted and maybe you’ll see how Mata has utterly embarrassed you.

    @Hardly Right,

    I never called him a hero. That is false!

    Ivan is a breath of fresh air here. Add Ivan as a contributor! Enough with the shilling for the big spending, covering for malfeasance corporations (especially TEPCO in recent threads).

    I am not here to defend Ivan, Buchanan, or anyone. The thread I have seen Ivan make comments have been focused and succinct… that is what I applaud. You have no credibility with me to make claims against people. You shoot off your mouth and call names at the drop of a hat. Yes, I tend to get down to the level of people attacking me… but if you approached me properly, you would receive my opinions and not my derision, I might even listen to you.

    Please try to keep up. Ivan called puke cannon a hero. I never said you did, genius. I and others were involved in a thread with Ivan a while back where he said PB was a hero. Not to mention if I was so “truth” challenged as you claim, then you would have taken me up on my bet.
    You are a hypocrite and loon. You attacked others here and I returned the favor so spare us your whining and quit acting like a little b*tch.
    I should also add that you are a liar to the mix. We know you like him because he bashes the GOP. Stop pretending otherwise.
