9/11 at eleven

the right manWhen the left lampooned George W. Bush (inept) and Dick Cheney (evil), they probably didn’t grasp the two would be replaced by 1) a man who wouldn’t release his college transcripts, college applications, or standardized test results (Hey, prove he’s not the smartest president ever!) and 2) a VP who can’t order lunch without bringing disgrace to his office.

(Similarly, the left also appears to have failed to understand their man in the White House makes Jimmy Carter look like Milton Friedman and his running mate makes Chris Farley look like Henry Kissinger.)

But as it regards national security, wouldn’t you think that since the Constitution-shredding policies of Bush and Cheney have been embraced—and enhanced—by the Obama/Biden team there would be more from the left than mere crickets? Victor Davis Hanson has noted this discrepancy:

One of the unappreciated results of Barack Obama’s presidency has been the complete repudiation of the entire liberal assault on the anti-terrorism policies of the Bush presidency. That the venomous opposition to those policies ceased abruptly after Obama embraced them is not just proof of partisan cynicism, but seems to indicate that the measures were necessary and effective. So historians will be puzzled over how such protocols were widely praised in the aftermath of 9/11, then demagogued as useless, amoral, and illegal during the elections of 2004 and 2008, then embraced by the very critics who had demonized them — and all without an ounce of credit given to their originator, George Bush.

So here we are on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 and there’s a roaring silence from the left. More industrial-sized terrorism on American soil? None noted. Why? Because Obama kept using the Bush play-book, even if he will never acknowledge Bush’s wisdom or the ineptness of his prior positions (and they are legion).

Enjoy the post-9/11 silence and honor those who have paid its bill.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
