mp5: Democraps & Obama talked ship about BUSH ! TELL AMERICA WHAT IS THE DIFFERANCE BETWEEN THE TWO ! Gave a no-bid contract to Halliburton – just like Bush did In May 2010, it was reported that the Obama administration had selected KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for a no-bid contract worth as much as $568 million through 2011, just hours after the Justice Department had said it would pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of using kickbacks to get foreign contracts. ) Has an administration full of lobbyists, after promising he wouldn’t have any While running for President, Obama had promised that, unlike Bush, he would not have any lobbyists working in his administration. However, by February 2010, he had more than 40 lobbyists working in his administration. Supported the $700 billion TARP corporate-welfare bailout just like Bush While Senator, Obama voted for the $700 billion TARP bank bailout bill. The bailout rewarded irresponsible and illegal behavior. It redirected resources from more productive uses to less productive uses. It punished the hard working taxpayers who had played by the rules and obeyed the law. It created horrible incentives, and sent the wrong message. The bailout was evil because it rewarded the bad people and punished the good people. No society that does this can expect to remain free or prosperous. Instead of bailing out these corrupt corporations, we should have let them cease to exist, like we did with Enron. Expanded Bush’s unconstitutional government faith based programs Obama expanded the federal government’s faith based programs which had been started by President George W. Bush. Supported Bush’s unconstitutional Patriot Act In May 2011, Obama signed a renewal of the Patriot Act. Increased the national debt more in one term than Bush did in two The national debt increased more during Obama’s first three years and two months than it did during all eight years of George W. Bush’s presidency. Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without filing any charges In December 2011, ACLU executive director Anthony D. Romero criticized Obama for signing a bill that gave the U.S. government the power toindefinitely detain U.S. citizens without any charges being filed or any trial taking place. Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, warrantless wiretapping President Obama has defended warrantless wiretapping. Illegally put thousands of guns into hands of criminals In Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration ordered gun storeowners to illegally sell thousands of guns to criminals. Supported release of convicted mass murderer In 2010, Obama supported releasing Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi (who had been convicted of murdering 270 people) from prison.
