Former CIA chief: ‘I thank god every day for the continuity’ between Bush and Obama

On CNN on Sunday, former Bush officials lined up to praise President Obama:

Former Central Intelligence Agency Director Michael Hayden, a retired Air Force general, also argued that Obama’s approach has been, by and large, the same — regardless of campaign rhetoric.

“When one is in office, it’s, as the admiral has suggested, when one is in office, that responsibility weighs pretty heavily. And so we’ve seen a powerful consistency between two administrations trying to deal with this problem,” Hayden said. “Actually, I’ve seen it over two administrations, and I thank god every day for the continuity.”

“Regardless of which side of the political spectrum you come from or what your political views might be, these threats are very real and very serious. And we have to — have to deal with them in a very serious way,” [ former National Intelligence Director and retired Navy Vice Admiral Michael] McConnell added.

    I pray every day for US/UK/Israel war criminals, like Hayden or Rice or Chenney or Obama amogst many, to get some sort of horrible cancer and slowly suffer with it.

    “I thank god everyday for the continuity’ between Bush & “O”. Last time I looked, the only difference between any of them was “size, shape, color”, along with age.

    Face it, this Country is too large & complex for the type of Government running things today. When a bunch of dilettantes in Congress & the Administration can screw up as much as these have in 2 years, I seriously doubt that GOD is listening, though maybe god is, who ever that may be.

    Obviously his god, just like Bush’s, is a violent, vengeful creep who tolerates and encourages wars, killing civilians (including children), destruction of the planet, torture, unlimited imprisonment without charges, prosecution of whistleblowers, spying on all citizens, and stealing from the poor and working class to make the rich wealthier.

    This kind of god is closer to a demon than a god.

    These are not cases of fooot-in-mouth dieseas but deliberate attempts to insinuate that THEY– not Pres. Bush-it– made the polcies and, when the Republicans come back into the presidency, forget them not. Wash DC is full of monuments and whores leaning on them– not just whores but used up all whores who always were rather professionally mediocre– yet never as bad as since 2000!
