Bait and Switch

You can’t run on a platform of change and hope if you do the same fuckin’ bullshit the douchebag you replaced did.

Yesterday, the ‘Bamer said he’s gonna stop the release of hundreds of photos that show G.I. Joes abusing prisoners. He said the release of the photos would, “…further inflame anti-American opinion and to put our troops in greater danger.” Listen Barry-O…American troops are fighting two unnecessary wars with little rest and crappy gear. They’re already in great danger – a couple of pictures won’t change that. The president went on to say, "the individuals who were involved have been identified, and appropriate actions have been taken." How do we know? How can we believe you? After eight years of hearing Government-Cheese Dicks telling us “Things are being taken care of,” we’re a little leery of believing y’all right now.

Look Mr. President, it’s understandable that you’re politically scared. After all, Dr. Evil and Fat Man have already laid the blame for the next terrorist attack on you and your policies. But those policies look an awful lot like the policies of the Bush-Wipe and his administration. Where is the change you promised us? This is America. We don’t keep secrets from our citizens (anymore). We’re grownups. Release the photos and let Americans decide if you’ve taken care of business. Keep ‘em secret and you’re no better than the right-wing nut jobs who held your office the last two terms. Remember how that turned out?
