(5-8-13) So has the Obama Regime really continued and even expanded Bush Cabal foreign and domestic policies?
Some wags have even quipped that Obama has out-Bushed Bush himself with the acceleration of heavy-handed tactics aimed at foreign and domestic "enemies."
Actually the Obama Regime is trying to unwind, shall we say, Bushonian military excesses, certainly in the Middle East. In other words, if the Bush Cabal were still in power, we would have a half a million US troops in Syria by now.
Why? Because with Syria there would be tremendous leverage to insert a large US force. Not only could you pressure the Russians in doing so -- into giving Syria's president Assad sanctuary and get rid of him pretty quickly -- because a large US presence in Syria would give the United States much more bargaining power with Uncle Vlad (Putin).
As long as the United States extended some assurances to Russia about Syria's foreign debt the same way the Bushonian people extended assurances to Russia about Iraqi debt -- of course, all at US taxpayers' expense -- then there would be a lot of leverage.
