Strange bedfellows indeed….

April 4, 2011

It’s bad enough when radical, supposedly liberal feminists look the other way when Islamic radicals perpetuate honor killings of innocent women in the name of multi-culturalism. Strange bedfellows when their moral relativism allows those they claim to represent to be slaughtered for things like rape.

That’s strange

What’s scary is that I – NOT a radical feminist bound by moral relativism find myself agreeing with Iran’s Ahmadinejad??!!!??

Gateway Pundit: Stating his interpretation of the Obama policy, Ahmadinejad said that the difference between Bush and Obama lies in the fact that the current US president uses force and at the same time deception and conspiracy unlike Bush who clearly resorted to weapon and military action to save the capitalistic system.

I’m not one to pretend that everything is as stated – I look at the actions being taken. Then I look at the words being spoken to see if actions match stated intent and stated outcome.

I’m not a fan of the Bush administration other than the fact that they were pretty open and clear about the reasons behind what they were doing. I might have thought the intentions and statements silly (i.e., democracy has never truly taken hold in any country where the Age of Enlightenment hasn’t been first), but Bush  at least matched words and actions in most areas. I still debate the use of the term “conservative” as it relates to his fiscal policy…..

All that being said – when the Obama administration gets elected based on claiming to be the anti-Bush, and then operates as the Bush-bashing-implement-the same-basic-policies-with-apologies dude, well, I think that people didn’t get what they voted for (unless you’re talking unions – they did get what they voted for).

    The more the left hated a “Bush policy,” the more likely they were to say nothing about the continuation of it under Obama. Consider the despised practice of “rendition” — it even had books written about how terrible Bush was in this regard. (And rarely mentioning that Bush did not originate this policy.)

    Of course, it is still the practice under Obama. But this is somehow not worthy of comment.

    President Bush often did a poor job of making his case before the public. President Obama does not seem to feel the need to try. And considering their very different apparently goals, I understand why.

    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is rarely correct in his published statements — his goal is always to provoke, not to inform. But here, the truth is provocative enough to suit his purposes, and he is close to it in your quote.
