Dissent Is Unpatriotic... Since 20 January 2009

Chairman Zero Apparatchik John Brennan -- Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism -- wants you to know that criticizing the president helps Al Qaeda.

"Politically motivated criticism and unfounded fear-mongering only serve the goals of al-Qaeda."

Yeah, it's a good thing Obama's people never did anything like this when Bush was president. I mean, SRSLY, what kind of ahole criticizes a sitting president's terror strategy purely to gain a domestic political advantage?

Oh, wait.

"This war distracts us from every threat that we face and so many opportunities we could seize. This war diminishes our security, our standing in the world, our military, our economy, and the resources that we need to confront the challenges of the 21st century. By any measure, our single-minded and open-ended focus on Iraq is not a sound strategy for keeping America safe." -- Barack Obama, on Bush's Iraq policy, July 15, 2008


"We know what the war in Iraq has cost us in lives and treasure, in influence and respect," Obama said. "We have seen the consequences of a foreign policy based on flawed ideology, and a belief that tough talk can replace real strength and vision." Barack Obama, April 23, 2007


"George Bush and John McCain have a lot to answer for... They've got to answer for the fact that Iran is the greatest strategic beneficiary of our invasion of Iraq. It made Iran stronger, George Bush's policies."
"That's the Bush-McCain record on protecting this country," he added. "Those are the failed policies that John McCain wants to double down on." Barack Obama, May 15, 2008

Never mind, then.
