President George W. Bush bailed out mega-banks and insurance companies, sent troops throughout the world to combat “terrorists,” rolled back civil rights, increased the size and intrusiveness of government, pushed for offshore oil drilling, tapped phones without warrants, and did it all with deficit spending. Throughout his tenure, the GOP cheered him and the Dems demonized him
Enter President Obama. He has continued or expanded every one of these policies. Yet the GOP demonizes him while the Democrats cheer him— often on the supposed merits of the very same policy. Why the flip flop?
