Blackguy4you saidI wouldn't say exceeding. but damn!!!!! Mr. O has done more in a several months than bush did in several years. see no matter which way you cut it. President O will be brilliant at what he does
Oh I am a great supporter of President O. But I am alarmed by these reports. It is hard for a bureaucracy to give up powers.
And I am afraid that O doesnt want to get into investigating Bush and company's dirty deeds, while doing the rest of his agenda. I think it is important to investigate what Bush and co. did.
I agree it is something to be investigated. But I do recall seeing an interview with O where he said that there were more important things on the agenda and he prefers to look forward rather than back
I know I will likely get my head bitten off for saying so, given the amount of Obama supporters, but:
That's called political rhetoric. It is a great way to say he is letting Bush & Co. scott free for all their heinous crimes, and continuing with his own agenda.
It's called maintaining the status quo. The US doesnt investigate its own crimes, they protect and cover up their crimes and criminals.
"Moving forward" is just another way of saying, "forget the past".
Yet, if you were really to "move forward" the past is absolutely essential in reviewing, specifically in relation to crimes committed by Bush & Co., of which almost every member of the previous administration was involved in some criminal activity, and the key players should face new Nuremberg trials, but oh, no, let's just forget about that and move on. Not punishing criminals sends a great message about abusing political power - that you can get away with it.
Obama's statement seems to fly in the face of the entire discipline of history... we study history so that we may not repeat it, and so that we can understand how we got to the present.
To refuse investigating ALL Bush crimes is to not study (or cover up and ignore/hide) how we got to where we are, and thus, we cannot logically move forward in a rational manner.
