When Democrats Derp

"In the second debate in 2004 U.S. presidential election, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry questioned the size of the coalition participating in the initial invasion, saying, "...when we went in, there were three countries: Great Britain, Australia and the United States. That's not a grand coalition. We can do better".


Comments relevant.


Back during the Bush years everyone - and I mean everyone had something to say about how evil he was. You couldn't turn the TV on, read a paper or even listen to a concert '(I hope the Muslims win'! bellowed Crissie Hynde with the intellectual prowess of a community organizer) without anger pointed towards the Bush administration. Movies and faux-documentaries were made; coffee houses and university campuses pounded their precious tables and chests lamenting the fall of the American Republic and 'democracy'.

Even at a late night stand up show a comedian mocked Bush's 'Coalition of the Willing'. Another prevailing view was the 'unhinged' Bush Doctrine was going to attack Iran and then Syria and so on.

You couldn't escape it. It was everywhere.


I was in Delaware and shopping in a shop clearly leaning left (judging by the merchandise) and in full display were anti-Bush stickers. Six years after. It's like Obama's worse record isn't even happening.


What constitutes a 'coalition' anyway? Two, three, 10 countries? 


Even as Obama out-attacks Bush, secretly drone kills without due process all while pushing an incoherent foreign policy of 'not war-war'.
