If you run with a left-leaning crowd as I do, you probably have a lot of friends trying their hardest to defend Obama regardless of the reality. “Yeah, but this mess happened on Bush’s watch, Obama is just trying to deal with it,” “He added jobs,” “What’s wrong with socialism?” and so on. It’s frustrating and so scary to see these normally rational folks eat up MSM talking points and regurgitate them ad nauseum. These people were so critial of the government during Bush’s terms, but now suddenly have nothing to say about war crimes or destruction of civil liberties.
I may never be able to school my friends in my Austrian perspective (at least not until the dollar collapses), so in the mean time I have compiled an abbreeviated compilation of war crimes and destruction of civil liberties commited under direction of the current Commander in Cheif. Say what you want about economics, but you can’t deny that the Presidnet has complete authority in the following matters. Put this evidence in front of Obamapoligists and watch them squirm and make excuses. It’s not a pleasant sight, but hopefully it at least plants a seed of curiosity in their mind.
