I know it's been a long time since I posted anything of substance here. Apologies.
So recently President Obama said, with regard to those who speak out against his administration's agenda "I don't want the folks who created the mess do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking."
It's really a shame that this kind of response is only now acceptable. I really like how President Obama constantly prefaces any of his remarks with a reminder that he "inherited" the problems that affect the country. I wholeheartedly approve of this approach, as I always believed that President Bush spent far too little time reminding the country that the Bush administration's actions in dealing with 9/11 were immune to criticism since 9/11 was something Bush inherited from the prior administration.
I supposed that we can now wipe clean all of the criticism against the Patriot Act, the alleged "torture" of terrorists and government programs that involved wiretapping, surveillance and alleged suppression of civil liberties. All those lefties who spent 8 years screaming about Bush should have been told that they shouldn't be doing a lot of talking, as they caused the problem that President Bush was fixing.
