Are the Republicans being fair with their criticism toward President Obama over the Christmas bomber incident?
Bush waited 6 days before making a public statement about the shoe bomber. Obama waited 3 days before making a public statement about the Christmas bomber. This makes Obama’s a procrastinator for waiting 3 days, but Bush wasn’t a procrastinator because he waited 6 days. Obama bad, Bush good.
The shoe bomber was tried and convicted by the Bush administration in federal court. The Obama administration plans to try the Christmas bomber in federal court. Obama bad, Bush good.
Bush said he wanted to close Gitmo. Obama said he wanted to close Gitmo. Obama bad, Bush good.
Bush released 530+ prisoners from Gitmo. Obama released 40 prisoners from Gitmo. Obama bad, Bush good.
Less than a year into Bush’s presidency the U.S. suffered the worst terrorist attack on our soil in the country’s history, resulting in over 3,000 dead Americans. Less than a year into Obama’s presidency there has been no succesful terrorist attack in our country. Obama bad, Bush good.
