Nader has done some good things, but considering President Barack Obama a War Criminal is delusional.

I think you don't understand me very well at all. [Big Grin] If you seemed interested in a dialogue, instead of an interrogation, I'd probably participate.

Ok, may I ask you, politely, if you are not annoyed by the phenomenon of liberals who called Bush a war criminal not saying a word about Obama doing the same things?

I'll just say that I'm annoyed by it. Me and Glenn Greenwald.

To be fair, more lefties who called Bush a war criminal, do say one word about Obama doing it: "disappointing." That's slightly less hypocritical; it's war crime when evil Bush does it but just disappointing when the Obasiah does it.

Out of curiosity, can you show an example of someone doing this (calling something a war crime under Bush, and calling the same thing "disappointing" under Obama)?

Wish you'd asked me that before the debate, since "Obama disappointing" has been eclipsed by bitter lefty remarks about O's debate performance.

I guess so, if I gave it much thought. But to be fair, I thought they were delusional Kool Aid drinkers then so it doesn't surprise me enough to matter. You're always going to have people with strong cognitive biases on every issue. There are idiots on the right and left and in the middle, etc.

I did think the Center-Left treated Cindy Sheehan pretty shabbily after Obama took over. Particularly the Left wing media. It's almost comical how she went from a regular fixture to a nobody in a pretty short period of time.

Yup. From Joan the Blab-twist to the Anti-Bama -- in 2 short months. Poof!

Pete and JW,

It's obvious that neither of you actually read any of the news outlets from the left you criticize, as there has been plenty of condemnation of Obama there -- not just "disappointment."
