Uh Oh, Another Right Wing Hero Gone Bad

Share Button

General Petraeus is on record criticizing the Bush administration on the war. Now, for the current conservative crowd, it’s OK to criticize Bush on spending, but the war has always been off limits. Petraeus will become a target of conservative scorn in 3… 2… 1…

PS. Remember how conservatives were sympathetic to McCrystal when criticizing the Obama administrations handling of the war. Lets remember that when they start ripping into Petraeus.

    I guess I’m not a conservative. Been saying that for years but nobody would believe me.

    And I will not be ripping into General Petraeus.

    I think President Bush was less bad that a lot of his predecessor progressives, but he was far from perfect.

    Without any credentials but a reading of history, I believe that Bush the senior could have finished the job, and Bush the younger could have done better. (Could either have prevented 9/11? I don’t know. But we can prevent the next one if we want to.)

    I guess we need to get down to the brass.

    The problem is in the phrase “right wing”.

    Please see Glenn Beck’s lectures on the subject.
