Heard recently on the mid-term campaign trail:
“It’s a choice between the policies that led us into this mess and the policies that are leading us out of this mess. It’s a choice between falling backwards or moving forward.”
That's a rather odd statement made by the President considering that his domestic policies from stimuli and bailouts to Keynesian demand-sided gimmickry are merely extensions, though on a much grander scale, of Bush's policies.*
Have we mentioned that Gitmo is still open and that KSM and others of that ilk probably won't be making it to a civilian courtroom any time soon? And does the shameless pandering on Amnesty sound any different from what we were hearing 3 years ago?
And for those of you that belly-ached over the politicization of the Justice Department under the Bush administration, can you please explain what is happening over there now as well what was recently disclosed by the AP at the Department of Homeland Security?
For those of you that wanted Hopenchange how does it feel now knowing that Obama is merely Bush on human growth hormones?
Perhaps, now, if you are all honest with yourselves, what you were pissed off about during the Bush administration is that you didn't have enough Bush in your life because more Bush is precisely what you are getting.
How does that taste?
* Because we wanted to refrain from being any more cynical than this post already has been on a pleasant valley Sunday, let the record show that we didn't mention that we are still in Iraq and Afghanistan.

My God, what have I done?
