Where's the outrage?

I was just wondering if the MSM would have exploded with outrage and Bush Burning if this latest Afghanistan tragedy had happened under Bush. Doesn't killing 16 civilians, families with children, seem a tad more serious than escapades of bored servicemen guarding a prison? That went on for weeks, or maybe months. Congress (Democrats) were relentless, as was the media. The press seems to have yawned over this one and gone back to watch the president play golf. Here's another speculation from the left--Politico.
Salon columnist Glenn Greenwald, an icon of what the Obama White House famously dubbed “the professional left,” also sees a strange lack of interest toward some of Obama’s policies. Among them: his administration’s claim that the Constitution allows executive use of armed drones to kill U.S. citizens abroad deemed to be terrorist operatives.

“Virtually all the Democrats who were apoplectic about Bush and were constantly complaining about him ‘trampling on our values’ over eavesdropping and detention have been silent about assassination, even though it’s so much more severe,” Greenwald said. “It isn’t that Obama is necessarily any worse on civil liberties than Bush. The point is he’s able to get away with so much more.”
Eric Holder is going after pro-life sidewalk counselors, but waving off Fast and Furious. He shrugged at Black Panther intimidation of voters but seems to think showing an ID to vote, which is required here in Ohio, is discrimantory for Hispanics. Obama can take out American citizens--kill them--no trial, and he can have us arrested is we're walking near a federal building.

What's up Demicrats. Why do you still support him?

I think they're watching him watch basketball. Golf is summer.
