Red_Vespa saidDuring Bush, these 2 innocent women would have languished in North Korea indefinitely. The Obama Administration got them home. I judge by results, not by counter-productive neo-Con rhetoric. That's why I still wait for results on pro-gay promises from this White House. Either you produce, or you perish. A simple rule to which all politicians should be held.
Here you go again with the Crystal Ball mentality as if you have any idea whatsoever what Bush would have (or have not) done to free the two journalists. As I said in another thread, who's to say that if Bush were President the North Koreans would have even arrested the 2 women in the first place, much less tried, convicted, and imprisoned them. And to argue that Bush wouldn't have done everything possible to free the women is ridiculous.
Who's to say the women still would have been arrested under Bush?? Umm...common sense and reason. lol Considering how deeply the world hated us under Bush & Co., I wouldn't have been surprised if the women were tortured under him--let alone not set free.
Why is it the fringe conservatives fail to accept the reality that virtually the entire world HATED us under Bush--and rightly so? As Bill Maher said, Bush thought God gave America the biggest dick just so it could piss on every one else, and they noticed.
I've been to Europe twice since Obama was elected and it's simply astonishing how quickly the world's view of America has turned around. As my friend in London said, the UK and most of Europe were actually starting to wonder about the average voter in America, with a radical dumb-ass like Bush elected to two terms. They were not only *incredibly* relieved that Obama won, but astonished that another unqualified right-wing freak like McCain even had a shot at all.
