Magic rightwinger thinking.

Jun 06, 2010 in Clueless Conservatives

Eric Martin tries to make sense of the senseless:

So Bush kept us safe by waterboarding three detainees way back when, but continuing the use of torture wouldn’t yield any valuable intel now (it didn’t back then either, but that’s another story). Nevertheless, Obama’s refusal to continue waterboarding detainees* (even though Bush stopped too) is making us less safe.

Here’s the litany rightwingers repeat to themselves nowadays to create the feeling of danger:

June 1, 2009 army recruiting base murder, 2009 Christmas Day undie bomber, November 13, 2009 Ft. Hood, and the May 1, 2010 Times Square bomber.

Wow, that’s an impressive list of things Obama made happen because he’s continued to not waterboard prisoners. Some deranged lone wolves, two of whom were incompetents, lashing out or attempting to and getting caught. Gee, has any nation ever faced such peril??? Ft. Hood? Shit, shooting up a bunch of innocent people is practically an American past-time, but wingers just can’t help themselves. This was A Successful Terrorist Attack On U.S. Soil and all must treat it as if 9/11 happened all over again.

Amazingly, wingers can always do this while obeying the prime directive: Always remember to forget that George W. Bush was on watch on 9/11 and ignored the warnings.
