Today’s headlines yesterday

As an exercise in reminding ourselves of how contemptible the opposition is, I decided to try a little mind experiment.  Put today’s headlines back in, say, 2006, during Bush’s administration, and try to imagine how the Usual Suspects would react.

So:

#1
“Bush opens new front in War on Terror, bombs Libya without consulting Congress

  -Is this legal?

  -Is military stretched too thin to be effective in Libya?

  -Who, really, are we helping in Libya?”

#2
“Rumsfeld allows gays to serve.

  -With US Military suicides at an all time high, will suicides now climb higher?

  -Will this desperate attempt help bolster the numbers of an exhausted military nearing the breaking point

  -’This is just a shallow attempt to boost ratings among moderates and bring more young Americans into the death trap that is Bush’s illegal wars’ – Cindy Sheehan “

#3
“Benghazi Terrorist Attack!  Ambassador Stevens, three others killed!

-Is this sign of administration’s failures to contain terror?

-What did Rice know, and when?

-’This is unconscionable, it was the anniversary of 9/11!  How could even this incompetent administration not see this coming?’ – Rep. Pelosi ”

You know, I can’t even continue right now…I’m disgusting myself by being reminded of how completely corrupt things are…

I encourage y’all to play along, and take a recent headline and put it back during the Bush administration, too.  Or, hell, do the opposite – say write headlines and bylines gushing over Bush’s awesome handling of post-Katrina.
