This is just too funny. Buzzfeed should give Benny Johnson a raise or a company car or something:

Democrats were overjoyed when George W. Bush left office in January of 2009.Via: amfussybroadObama had promised to end Bush’s hawkish foreign policy and the “war on terror’s” detention and interrogation regime.View this image ›
But in the beginning of his fifth year as president, Obama’s record has been surprisingly similar to his predecessor’s in those areas.
1. Democrats fought George W. Bush’s troop surge in Iraq in 2006.
Obama copied it in Afghanistan in 2009.
You would think Democrats would react the same way they did to Bush’s surge policy:
But they were really more like:
2. American deaths in Afghanistan have skyrocketed since Obama took office.
Actually, the death tolls in Afghanistan under each administration look like this:
So you would think Democrats would react like this:
But they are much more like this.
3. President Obama’s drones and special operators are working down “kill lists” of suspected terrorists.
Obama even put Anwar al-Awlaki — an American citizen — on such a list.
Al-Awlaki [an American citizen] was killed under secret authorization from the justice department in 2011.
If Bush did this, the Democrats would be all like:
But now they are more like:
4. Drone attacks have risen sharply under Obama.
Last year, a teenage American citizen, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, was taken out in a drone strike without a trial.

We could add in stuff like the debt, the deficit and the debt ceiling. But who’s counting? Not the mainstream media, that’s for sure.
It is amazing how hypocritical the Democrat Party and the liberals who form their core truly are. They are bad people and bad people always prefer lies just as they are always hypocrites. You cannot have an honest argument with people who say one thing,do another – and then say something completely different without ever having acknoweledged how dishonest they were from the beginning.
In order to have a fair and honest debate, you simply have to have both sides have integrity. We don’t have that as long as we have liberals with any power.
